Lit tiki torches

A Tiki torch is a bamboo torch originating in Tiki culture, but increased in popularity and spread to other places where it is a popular party decoration and can create an island aesthetic to outdoor decorations.

The common style is to have a bamboo stick with a container of flammable fluid at the top, and then a lit wick drawing from that container.[1]

The popularity in America rose in the 1930s and further increased in the following decades.[2]

Some flowers have been nicknamed "Tiki Torch":
