With the help of TIKI Brand products, we’ll show you how to create an outdoor oasis in even the smallest of spaces – the perfect place to enjoy some of our favorite After School snacks!

Creating a Small Outdoor Oasis

You don’t need a whole arsenal of items to create a relaxing space to enjoy your favorite snack! Start with an outdoor rug to designate your space, then you can add a few chairs, a small table, and a few plants as fillers!

We also highly recommend using these gorgeous TIKI brand table torches and citronella candles to add ambiance to your space. Also, when filled with BiteFighter torch fuel, they offer proven mosquito repellency! Nothing ruins a relaxing evening than a pesky mosquito bite. The only thing that should be biting is you into these delicious cheese and cracker appetizers. 😉

We think the perfect way to top off a relaxing moment is to add a delicious and healthy snack! Grab a few ingredients, and you’re on your way to maximum oasis enjoyment.

Cream Cheese and Crackers After School Snack

One of my very favorite after-school snacks growing up were these delicious little crackers, covered in cream cheese, then topped with a canned mandarin orange. My mom even served these as appetizers – they are so easy and SO delicious!
