Outdoor Party Tips
This post brought to you by TIKI® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine. I love living in Florida. I can have an outdoor party in my backyard pretty much any time of the year. Hosting a party is definitely one of my favorite things to do! Being outside, communing with nature and each other always sets the mood for a fantastic gathering. The aftermath of an outdoor event is normally a whole lot easier than the indoor version! If you are in the planning phase of your next outdoor soiree, these tips will make sure your party is on the road to success.

I’ll use the colorful Molded Glass Tabletop lamp set right on the table along the driveway to light the way.
Watch out for bugs!
I used the accompanying Torch Stake to get them into the ground easily. TIKI Brand Royal Poly Bamboo Torch is a great choice for beauty and function.

Keeping the insects at bay is so important in Florida. Burning citronella torch fuel in your torches and table torches is one of the best ways to help keep the mosquitoes away. It is super easy to fill them with the generous sized 50 oz TIKI BRAND Citronella Torch Fuel using the handy Snap & Pour Spout!

For those last minute lighting needs, thank goodness for the no muss no fuss 12 oz Ready to Light Citronella Torch Fuel that pops right into the torches in a snap!

Set the mood
Set the mood. Create the perfect ambiance with individual table torches for each table.

Create Ambiance

Even my cat likes to be romanced

The TIKI Brand Glowing Table Torch in the Palm Leaf Pattern are just perfect for creating a tropical vibe. They come with an attached cap to snuff the flame easily. You can also enjoy the TIKI Brand created Spotify playlist which is the best for outdoor entertaining and relaxing.

Adequate Seating

It would be nice if you were so popular there was standing room only!

Make sure you have enough seating for everyone.

You want your guests to be comfortable. Folding chairs are usually available from your local party rental place for around $2 each. At my home, I have several groups of sitting areas for everyone to gather and chat in various areas in my yard.

  1. One of my favorite parts of summer are the parties! I love tiki culture and retro styles- these torches would be the perfect addition to my backyard decor. Repelling insects is an added bonus, those little buggers sure know how to kill the mood:)
