Cool Tiki Torches
Tiki torches have been popular for a long time and nowadays there are so many variants available. You can go for traditional or opt for solar or some other newfangled green model. There are even uber elegant models of tiki torches these days that even the most sophisticated people wouldn't mind showcasing in their gardens. Besides, you have to admit they are cool, no? They always look good at parties but if you go with the traditional models you really need to sure you set them up properly because the old school variety can be top heavy and you don't really want flaming objects falling over in your garden, especially if you're in the middle of a heatwave or dry spell. So be careful!
Paradise Solar Bamboo Tiki
This very modern and hip tiki torch from Paradise Lighting doesn't require any special wiring and will be up and working in a matter of seconds. Operates via re-chargable solar power and Ni-Cad batteries. The torch is made of weather resistant poly construction. There should be about 6-8 hours of light, provided you've had full sun exposure for charging during the day. So don't store these in the shade!
