Tiki torches are used for camping and general lawn decorations to create an atmosphere of peace, tranquility and mystery. They are popular for spending time on the beach at night, or by lakes and ponds. While they do not provide the warmth of a campfire, they are most known for luaus in Hawaii. Tiki torches denote a celebration with festive parties, live music and local cuisine. How does one install them in the ground to create their own lively atmosphere?
