How to Care for Your Sunbrella Fabric

Have you ever had patio furniture and constantly cleaning up ketchup from burger night? How about that time you were out of town and your cushions were outside during that big thunderstorm? Or even if you avoid the ketchup and the rain, but the sun’s UV rays fade those once vibrant cushions?

As a patio furniture retailer, we have heard of every complaint under the sun it seems and we get asked all the time, “what can I do to better care for my cushions?”. Most times this means putting the cushion covers through the wash and risk having them shrink or fade, and even still they may not look the same afterwards. It’s also unreasonable to keep the furniture covered all the time, because you bought the furniture to enjoy your patio, not just look at furniture covers. One solution that we recommend is making sure you have high-quality Sunbrella fabrics on your patio furniture.

Here are some helpful hints for maintaining your Sunbrella fabric:

  • Protect the area around your Sunbrella fabric when using a bleach solution – bleach may discolor non-Sunbrella fabrics. Always rinse Sunbrella thoroughly to completely remove bleach.
  • Please be aware of the environment when cleaning with bleach. Bleach can have harmful effects on the natural environment around you. We do not advise using bleach if you are surrounded by a body of water or other environment that could be affected.
  • Sunbrella fabric air-dries very quickly.
  • Machine drying is not necessary.
  • If fabric has some wrinkling, use an iron, if necessary, but only on the synthetic setting. As some irons exceed the recommended temperature on the synthetic setting, test a small inconspicuous area before ironing entire piece.

Sunbrella fabrics are very easy to care for and to maintain and to illustrate this, here is a video show you how easy it is.

Our Terrace Collection line of outdoor patio furniture comes with Sunbrella fabrics, as well as most of our furniture that we sell. We want to give you the best patio experience and that means we choose Sunbrella fabrics!

5 Ways to Improve Your Patio for Fall

Kids are going back to school, the days are getting shorter, and the nights are cooling down. Fall is right around the corner, and as summer starts to wane we have get a lot of phone calls of people asking what to do with their patio for the fall.

Fall is still a great time to entertain guests, and often times one of the best times of the year to have guests over because of the temperate weather that fall brings. Pool parties may be winding down, but BBQs and gatherings for sports are still in full swing. Here are 5 ways to improve your patio for fall!

Outdoor Rugs
Outdoor Rug

One of the simplest ways to improve your outdoor space is with an outdoor area rug to go underneath any existing patio furniture. These rugs are made from 100% recycled plastic and are UV protected, and fade proof. These rugs are handcrafted by local artisans in Thailand and come in beautiful patterns with vivid colors! They are very easy to maintain and will provide some protection to any deck surface from unwanted leaves and other things falling from trees.

All Backyard Fun at the Boulder Creek Festival

What a busy month May was! In a matter of weeks, we hosted a launch party with the Boulder Chamber of Commerce and we displayed a booth at the Boulder Creek Festival which sees more than 35,000 people visit over the course of three days! Whew!

Each year on Memorial Day weekend the city of Boulder hosts one of the best and most well known 10K races in the United States, the BolderBoulder as well as hosts a festival along the banks of the Boulder Creek. The aptly named Boulder Creek Festival runs Saturday-Monday and is an important event for the community of Boulder and its downtown neighborhood. The event features live music, a craft-beer garden, food courts, many many booths featuring everything from artisan woodworking, and clothing to crossfit and outdoor furniture.

This was our first year having a booth at the Boulder Creek Festival and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce ourselves to the greater Boulder community with such a fun event. We saw heavy foot traffic all three days of the festival and got to chat with numerous people about Oriflamme fire tables and our lines of patio furniture. The weather was beautiful but stormy which worked in our favor as people were taking refuge from the rain and wind inside our tent. We even had one of the fire tables running for people to warm up next to!

We had so much fun introducing ourselves to Boulder and chatting with curious festival goers about our products, why we moved the business from Minnesota to Colorado, where we are located in Boulder, and the always popular “can I touch the glass?”.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year at the Boulder Creek Festival!

All Backyard Fun had its ribbon cutting party on May 15, 2014 to celebrate nearly a year of doing business here in Boulder, Colorado.

Launching All Backyard Fun in Boulder

Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it? During the last couple of months, it’s been very busy around here at All Backyard Fun and we haven’t had a lot of time to stop and enjoy the community of our city and our customers. On May 15th, we got the opportunity to do just that! Our ribbon cutting and launch party took place on the 15th and we invited many of our local customers, business partners, neighbors, and guests to come out and celebrate with us.

The Boulder Chamber of Commerce was on hand with a ribbon and a pair of novelty scissors, our friends over at Upslope Brewery provided delicious beer, and the great folks over at the Protein Bar brought super yummy (and healthy) wraps, burritos, and salads. As the evening went on, we got the opportunity to share with everyone gathered how much we appreciate their support, interest, and business and that we are looking forward to growing deep roots here in the Front Range. We had such a great evening and even got to connect with a few online customers who stopped by too! Please browse through the photos and reach out to us if you are in the Front Range, we’d love to meet you!

Fun New Trends for your Backyard in 2014

This morning I woke up to the most beautiful sound that only comes at the very first days of spring. The birds were singing along to a truly beautiful, orange and violet, sunrise that started at 5:45 AM, yes the sun is finally back and joining the party.  Spring is almost here, and if you are anything like me, you are already playing in the garden, and anxiously awaiting the endless summer days spent in your backyard retreat. Here is a fun list of way to make your backyard more than a space for the family to play and relax. This spring and summer transform your yard into a magical retreat full of imagination, discovery, and memories that will last a life time.

1.    Catch a Fire

Fire is hot, obviously, but for real, fire is really hot right now! Everyone from Vanilla Ice to Grandma Helen is bringing fire elements to their outdoor space. Fire pits are increasingly popular each year.  Fire pits, tables, and torches are easy to install, add amazing ambience to your outdoor space and also will provide warmth, allowing you and your family to use you outdoor space well past the heat of summer and into the chilly evenings of fall

  • Fire Pits

How do I decide which fire pit is appropriate for me? Well, this will really depend on your time commitment to the fire pit. Building your own fire pit can be costly, time-consuming, and has huge room for error. Unless a professional is overseeing the entire process, it is easy to miss a step, causing a fire disaster, the opposite of ambience.  Another thing to consider is maintenance. Are you willing to clean soot, ash, and burnt particles after each use? If no, then you should consider a propane or natural gas fueled fire pit. Not only will these burn cleaner, they will not create smoke, or embers which are dangerous and can cause wildfires.

There is an easy solution to fire pit nightmares with the Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables. Everything is included with this simple, yet elegance fire table. The propane fueled fire table comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from 40” to 48”, and shapes, square, round, and octagon.  The table will come with a propane tank, fire glass, a unique double pan burner, and a base that keeps the table at 19” high – perfect coffee table height, or cocktail, which ever you prefer.

  • Tiki Torches

A classic go to for adding elements of fire to you backyard. From simple tiki torches you can find at any home improvement store, to the artistic steel sculptures from Desert Steel. These hand-crafted steel garden sculptures double as multi-torch tikis! Collect a variety of iconic desert plants from Birds of Paradise to a 6.5 foot Saguaro Cactus. Sure to be a conversation piece at your next garden party.

2.    Cool Down

We can’t all live within walking distance to a Rita’s Water Ice, yes my eastern sea-board friends, I am jealous of your amazing ability to play host to most of my favorite American chains, Wawa, Five Guys, and Ritas, I digress.  Add ice to you backyard! Haven’t you seen the cool new trend? Turn your table into an ice bucket to keep you beers or wine chilled throughout the heat of summer days. Several ways to do this, for the handy ones, you can build your own table with a depressed cutout in the middle for an ice area.

Own an Oriflamme Fire Table already? Then look into this one of a kind accessory made especially for Oriflamme tables, Ice Bucket insert is easy to order, and is always a quick ship items. As always, any order over $99 has free shipping.

3.    Relaxation Station

Dedicate a place in your yard where there are no phones, no interruptions, no stress, no loud noises, just a special place for you and your thoughts. Before selecting a piece of furniture, evaluate what kind of space you need and will utilize the most. Some questions to ponder: do you need a space for one to lounge or for many people to enjoy? Would you prefer to lounge or o be in an overstuff seat that will rock, swivel, and glide? Depending on your answers will you need to look into different pieces, from sectionals designed to fit around your fire pit, to overstuffed chairs that will give you hours of comfort to get lost in your favorite summer read. Really, the furniture possibilities are endless!

So, what should you be thinking about the most with your outdoor furniture? Fabric of course! The world of outdoor fabric is beautiful, luxurious, and technologically advanced. Yes, this isn’t your grandmother’s fabric anymore! When selecting furniture, make sure the fabric is Sunbrella fabric, a strain resistant, fade resistant, fast-drying fabric that should be the common place for all outdoor furniture.

4.    Life Sized Games

Spray paint a Twister game in your yard.

Spray paint a Twister game in your yard.

 

 

Don’t we all remember the classic scene of Tom Hanks in Big playing the life sized piano at FAO Schwarz? Still one of my favorites! Why not give your kids, and yourself, the pleasure of being a BIG as you can get in your own yard? Excited and wondering how? Simple, cheap, and so easy, the kids can even take this on as their own summer project!

Spray paint a twister board onto the lawn! No more slip on a twisted mat, not the whole family can easily play this game, add more rows of colored dots to allow for even bigger groups to play. Get the whole family involved this summer, and you will have the best reunion that everyone will remember forever!

Want to play a more tradition, mindful game? Make your own giant scrabble board for outside! Start with 1”x1” pavers, lay down a square of the tiles 16 x 16. Make up your own rules and placements for double word points and so on. By making your own scrabble board you can really personalize it to math your family’s personality. This is another fun project that can keep you and the kids busy during the first few days of summer break, and once completed you have hours of playtime ahead of you. Bonus: scrabble is a great way for kids for practice spelling and vocabulary skills all winter ling!

5.    It’s a Jungle out there!

Do you have a green thumb to be envied by all? Well, if so, you are a lucky soul! For the rest of the world, challenge yourself this summer! Y personal challenge? I am going to become a backyard farmer! I am planning to build my own raised veggie gardens, begin my plants from seeds, and then reap the benefits come harvest season.

Raised garden beds are an easy day project that requires little to no construction knowledge. Take it from me, I was able to easily pump out three of these 4’x8’ beds in a 12-hour period.  Use redwood or cedar because both are beautiful and rot-resistant. Also, you’ll need a table or power saw to cut the wood. An electric drill is helpful, but not required

Looking for more a splash of color and fresh fragrant flowers from May until early September? Wildflower seeds packs are fun, and easy for the whole family to get involved in gardening. When I was a child, my mother would always buy my sister and I our own pack of wildflower seed to plant to places of our choosing. A wonderful memory that I have long cherished, and it is guaranteed that your little ones will love this project too!

Giant Allium's make your yard turn into Dr. Seuss land!

The little guys too little to join the garden force? Try plating a few giant Allium flowers. These early summer bloomers grown to the height of 4 to 6 feet, creating an imaginative land for you toddlers to play in.

 

The above ideas are just the beginning. It’s your outdoor space, go out there and make it your dream place to spend lazy summer days. Creating a special place for all the family to enjoy will bring you closer together, build family bonds, and create memories of backyard parties that will last forever. Join the outdoor revolution today!

 

 

Fun Ideas for Your Backyard Makeover

Congratulations- we all made it through the holidays! Now let old man winter really settle in and start dreaming of warm summer nights. It’s time to start working on those plans to rework your outdoor space.  As a new homeowner myself, I cannot wait to begin updating and renovating my plain-Jane square backyard into the relaxing retreat I have always dreamed about. If you are like myself, you will most likely be spending as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying your outdoor area. Here is a good beginning list of renovation ideas for your backyard oasis, from the basics to a complete remodel.

1.       Create a Cozy Space

That lonely corner of the yard that is rarely used can be easily turned into a quite oasis for relaxing with your favorite book next to the fire table.  Place a few all-weather recycled plastic benches around a 19” high fire table to create a space for a large gathering. The octagon shaped fire tables are best for large groups, enough room for you and seven guest!

 

Or keep it intimate with a wicker loveseat, and a cozy 38” round Savanna Stone fire table. This smaller table has the same sized burn, puts of the same amount of heat, but is suited to fit into smaller spaces such as a downtown condo or loft.

 

Keep the fire table burning all year, regardless of local fire regulations and fire bans. Since the fire tables run off of a controlled valve propane tank, the flame is under control, does not emit ambers or smoke, and can be easily approved by most Home Owners Associations.

2.       A Space Fit for A King

Play around with elegant wicker furniture this summer. Add a touch of Queen Anne elegance with the Royal Plantation Glider Chair, bringing a piece of the British Empire home to your patio. Or for a more casual, beach keep posted and look into the new line of wicker sectionals from All Backyard Fun.  The new line of furniture is made from beautiful rattan wicker. More to be announced in early 2014.

Wicker not exactly your thing? Then rule your outdoor space form the comfort of a stately Jefferson Woven Back Rocking Chair. Made from recycled plastic, these amazingly durable, all-weather chairs are perfect for any porch or patio.

3.       No Adults Allowed!

Make a special get-away form the kids! Children love to escape to their own magic land of imagination and creativity.  Design a space that is just for them with outdoor furniture that is children sized! All Backyard Fun offers several just-for –them sized picnic tables and Adirondack chairs. All made form recycled plastic, these chairs and tables come in 13 vibrant colors that will honor the request of any prince or princess.

4.       Update your dazzle!

Already own a fabulous fire table? No worry, you can still update your backyard’s look! Did you know we offer seven unique burner designs? A fan of the New Orleans Saints? Try the Fluer de Lis burner in 2014 to show your loyalty to your team? Dallas Cowboys? Well for you there is a beautiful star burner to let all your neighbors know you are a fan of the Lone-Star state. From the meditative Yin-Yang to the festive martini glass, there is a burner that will match your personality.

 

Still love your burner? Update the colors! It takes 12 pounds of glass to fill the elegance burner for the Oriflamme fire table, why not add a few pounds of beautiful Azuria Blue Reflective Fire Glass to make your table sparkle at your summer parties.

5.        Improve Indoor-Outdoor Flow

Double the size of your indoor space by installing large sliding doors that open up to your outdoor living space. Using a similar tile from indoors to outdoors will help keep the same design throughout the space. The sliding doors will be an easy way to open up the area for one large great room, or to shut off the outdoor party form the inside.

Make sure you create a fire pit area for your guests to keep warm next to during all the BBQs you will be having in your backyard!

 6.       An Area for Fido

Plan a special area for your special friend to romp around in. Keep him away from your prized vegetables with an entreating area complete with a an outdoor dog bed, plenty of outdoor toys, and a special dirt zone for all his digging needs.

 

7.       Plan a Complete Remodel

There is nothing like long winter nights to stay warm inside while drafting plans for your summer time haven. Planning each detail to the finest point will fill those dark and cold nights. Come March you can break ground, and be sipping Mia Thais’ at your 4th of July BBQ.

 

If it is a large area that you plan to redo be sure to write down a plan! Using old fashioned pencil, yes pencil, remember the eraser? And paper will work just fine. Starting drawing away!

 

Some key trends in patio remodels include a bar and seating area complete with a fire table to set the ambiance and keep you and your party guests warm. Designing around key elements such as a fire table can allow for you to run a natural gas line to the fire table’s location. The Oriflamme Fire Table is easily converted for natural gas making a fire table a permanent feature of your outdoor sanctuary.

 

After you have planned out the key areas and feature of the backyard, you can start designing your space. All Backyard Fun’s line of wicker sectional sofas are designed to fit around round, square, or octagon fire tables. Choose form a variety of fabric choices to complete your patio renovation.

 

 

I am thrilled to begin my backyard makeover, and I hope that all of you follow along in my adventures as a novice gardener, landscape architect, and homeowner.   But until then I will be catching snowflakes on my tongue and counting down the days until the first day of spring. Happy 2014 everyone!

Hope your December is as warm and sunny as it is today in Colorado!
