Burning with elegance: Tiki

Memorial Day weekend is a wonderful time to celebrate our military who have passed away but also enjoy friends and family entertaining outside on an exquisite spring/ summer evening. My own holiday weekend began on Friday, relaxing on my backyard deck surrounded by a new garden filled with geraniums, impatiens and a colorful of array of potted plants. But besides special conversation with guests, snacks and cool drinks, it was the new Tiki product that created an outdoor paradise.

The long lasting adjustable flame torch truly added to the party creating the perfect flame while repelling against mosquitoes. The easy-to-use knob control lets guests create the perfect flame height for every occasion and adjustable flame torches are available in five multi-use torch styles and four table torch styles.The citronella and cedar formula in this fuel provides proven mosquito repellent; working with all TIKI® Brand torches and table torches. It also comes in an easy pour bottle for fewer spills and less mess. One friend commented on how my Tiki torch really added to the atmosphere and worked to keep insects away. Burn time can last several hours.

For over 60 years, Tiki has provided outdoor torches to illuminate yards along with candles and molded glass table torches made in a variety of colors. Tiki continues to help create a beautiful, versatile design of style and decor in their products to suit any lawn, patio, garden or even a front porch.

Tiki can be purchased in packages such as a four pack of 57 inch Luan Bamboo torches or a three pack of 6 inch glass table torch packs of red, green and blue. You can purchase a Tiki Brand 3 pack pineapple paradise glass table torches.

But I think it was the next day of the weekend, I enjoyed my Tiki torch the most after everyone had gone. As the sunlight was diminishing, I lit the torch while finishing my final coffee, reading the last chapter in my book, and noticing some beginning to descend. It was then that I knew I would spend more summer evenings on my deck with a new flame by my side; keeping away uninvited guests. Tiki is the best!

Tiki products can be found at most major retailers, online on Amazon and at tikibrand.com.

Memorial Day

By Caryl Clem:

Signs announce parade date, time information

Reminders of a deeper message

Our military personnel’s sacrifice and dedication

Battles remains, bloody carnage

Countless names and bodies

Final testament to fighting  bravely.

For those lost, not found, a painful memory.

 

Celebrate that their values did not perish

Invest in love, faith, hope and charity

Live these values with appreciation

So our freedoms and choices flourish.

 

Pay tribute to fallen soldiers in our military forces.

They insured Democracy is our past and future tense.
