Metal Tiki Torches Reviews and Product Information

Tiki torches are a great way of placing elegance into your garden. Really! Of course, some Tiki torches are going to bring to mind the kitschy Polynesian Tiki bar style that spread throughout the world starting in the 1950s, but several Metal Tiki Torches available now are much more stylish than what you may find in a big box store, and would fit in any decor. Our favorite of these elegant metal Tiki torches is the H Potter Copper Rustic Tiki Torch set. These are on the expensive side, but are strikingly beautiful, and are certain to elevate your garden’s evening ambiance.  They have fantastic copper color and patina, and their style oozes quality. They are available in individual units, and as a set of two.

For a complete overview of the Copper Rustic Tiki Torch set, please see our Product Reviews section below.

The Patio Umbrella Cone: Keep Your Umbrella Stable!

The Patio Umbrella Cone

The Patio Umbrella Cone

Patio umbrella poles are usually a good deal smaller than the opening supplied in a patio table. This difference means that it is easy to insert the umbrella into the table, but it also means that there is often a large gap between the shaft and the table. This opening can cause the umbrella to lean awkwardly, to rub against the table edge, to making annoying noises, and can scratch the finish off of the umbrella pole. The easiest fix for this is the patio umbrella cone! These clever little devices fit around your patio umbrella shaft, and create a solid, snug connection between the patio table and the umbrella.

This article looks closely at the patio umbrella cone, and reviews a few different brands of these clever little devices.

Citronella Oil Burners for the Garden

Citronella Oil Burners for the Garden and Patio can be a huge help, supplying attractive ambiance, twinkling light, and essential bug protection in the evening.

With a hand-blown glass base/oil reservoir, and a brass cap/wick holder, this garden lantern is beautiful, simple, and kitsch free. It is easily filled with oil, and will burn for hours. This unit is designed to solely sit on a table top; it cannot be mounted on a torch, or in any other way.
