Bringing The Element Of Fire To Our Backyard

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TIKI Brand® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our weather hit a record high yesterday, a 100 degree Nebraska day in May was a pretty big deal!  I love the heat, and it made me excited to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors.

Backyard patio and christmas lights
We have a teeny, tiny backyard, and I am always trying to think of ways to make it a cozy outdoor area that we want to be in as a family.  We are slowly making it into the space we imagine it could be.  I have done that with comfortable seating, a few pots of flowers, an in- ground water feature & some fun lighting.  We are getting close to having the outdoor space we have imagined, all that is left to add is a hammock, and a table with an umbrella so we can eat outdoors.
One of the things I recently got to cross off my list was the element of fire.  I wanted the ambience that fire brings, but did not want to mess with a fire pit.  Tiki torches were an option, but I wanted something more simple, that would be easier to store than a bunch of torches.  I was not sure what I was looking for, until I saw the new TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures.
Flame sculptures for backyard
These sculptures are great!  They are the perfect bridge between a garden torch and a fire pit.  They bring the ambience of a large, natural flame but with less mess and smoke than a fire pit.  If easy flame is what you are looking for, than TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures are a must have!
If you want one of your own, they are sold exclusively at The Home Depot.  They can be used with OFF! /BiteFighter Torch fuel which will provide mosquito repellency, which is a good option for us as our in- ground water feature can attract mosquitoes during certain summer months.
The TIKI Brand Fire Sculptures is a BREEZE to use.  I couldn’t believe it was so easy.  You simply fill the canister with fuel, screw the lid on, and light it.  It could not be easier.

My girls were super excited about the Fire Sculpture.  My youngest just came in and saw me writing this post and said “Mom, that is going to be your best post EVER because I love our new fire ‘thing'”  Ha.  So cute.
I have found that if I want the family to hang out in the back yard, all I have to do is light the sculpture and they come running.  It just sets such a nice atmosphere, and is such a simple and minimal way to bring the beauty of flame to our backyard.  I love it!

What about you?  Is this something you think you would like?  If so,  you can follow the TIKI Brand on Facebook.  They have other styles of Tiki Sculptures that are really beautiful. I’d love to know which one is your favorite and what you like about it.
