I could not be more thrilled that the temperatures are finally warm enough to enjoy long days in the garden and cool evenings on the patio. As an outdoorsy girl, living in the city can be wearing on my nerves. We are blessed to live near the river and love to take family walks together, but we don’t enjoy the small outdoor spaces surrounding our home as much as we should. This spring/summer, I am determined to get my family to eat more meals outside on our back patio!
Now, if I had my heart’s desire, our back patio would look something like a page from a Pottery Barn catalog with plush seating, a water feature, and a fire pit.
We don’t have a lot of space in our backyard or up on our roof deck, but I know I can make all of our outdoor rooms more enticing this year and I’m on a mission to do so. So here is my first secret weapon towards Operation Enjoy the Outdoors! It is one of the TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures that is available exclusively at Home Depot. They retail between $49-$89 depending on the style you choose. It’s a great and economical way to add a fire feature to your outdoor space. What I especially LOVE about this Tiki Fire Sculpture is that you can fill it with Off! BiteFighter Torch Fuel to dissuade those pesky mosquitoes from sticking around your yard.
I was impressed with how easy the Tiki Fire Sculpture is to fill. All you have to do is open the drop-in canister, attach the easy pour spout to your fuel, and fill your canister to the fill line. Once you screw the cap back on, just drop your canister into your Tiki Fire Sculpture and light once the wick has absorbed the fuel. When you want to snuff out your torch or cap it off when not in use, simply place the snuff cap on the top. You can witness the warm flame in full action in the video below. The smell of the fuel burning is pleasant and the ambiance of the fire is romantic.
I like that the base of my TIKI Brand Fire Sculpture is nice and wide, so I don’t have to worry about my dogs or kids easily knocking it over. Obviously with all fire elements, safety first! Make sure you don’t have your sculpture lit when not attended and keep the fuel away from small children. My boys are 6 and 8 and have a healthy fear and respect for fire and safety.
Now I can check “add fire element to yard” off of my to do list and start working on my water feature! Do you have a fire element in your outdoor space? If not, I encourage you to check out the TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures at Home Depot and you can also find TIKI Brand on Facebook to see if it might be right for your outdoor space!
P.S. The box makes a great costume as well. LOL!
