Choose Natural Light

With all due respect to Thomas Edison, sometimes you want to give harsh electric lights a rest. There’s a dark-sky movement in heavily populated areas to try to reduce light pollution. Illuminating your patio with the warm glow of natural flames lets you enjoy the brilliance of the night sky. Stargazers everywhere will thank you.

Define Your Space

Use strategic lighting to help define your space. For example, you can outline your porch in tall torches to create an intimate area within an expansive yard. You can also use glass table torches to highlight areas of interest like beverage stations.

Keep Guests Comfortable

On beautiful nights, you want everyone to enjoy the outside air as long as possible. Our long-lasting flames help, and so will a little hospitality. Drape each chair with a blanket or throw. When the temperature dips, guests can wrap themselves in an extra layer of warmth and keep the conversation flowing.

Contrast Your Concrete

Is your patio or balcony in the middle of a city? Offset your concrete jungle with elements that remind you of lush, faraway places. Add some potted plants. A classic TIKI® Brand Table Torch can add a hint of the tropics. Teals, blues and greens are the colors of paradise, so adorn a drab area with vibrant candles, like our TIKI® Brand Mercury Glass Hurricane Candle in Macedonia blue.
