Brighten up your Outside Space with Tiki Planters

Tiki torch Planters add a nice bit of ambiance to your parties and have a more natural look than normal lighting does.

There are lots of ideas for how to brighten up your patio space for night time entertaining.  

This fun idea combines lighting and plants for a decorative effect that your party guests will love. 

They also do a pretty good job of keeping the mosquitoes away.

Tiki Torch Planters give a great light to your patio.

We purchased a set of tiki torches last year for my daughter’s graduation party and they added a great atmosphere when it turned darker in the evening. 

But don’t just stop at the torches on their own.  Add them to a planter!  Since I have lots of these on my deck, this idea was perfect!

For this project, you will need a large planter which is filled with the tiki torches. The extra plants at the base of the lights adds a great extra dimension to the project.

What material are the planters made out of? do you need to use ceramic / stone or could you use a plastic planter?

The project is one of Lowe's Hardware projects and they suggest a clay pot planter.
