The Wicker’s Customize Their Fire Pit

February 25th, 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

Katie was thrilled that the Oriflamme Fire Table she chose was the most popular model that All Backyard Fun sells, the Tropical Elegance in the 42” Round. Sarah from All Backyard Fun explained to Katie the custom process of choosing her new fire table was not over, and she needed to choose her burner and fire glass for her table.

Sarah went through the list of burners available, which are the Sun, Flower, Martini Glass, Yin Yang, Star, Maple Leaf, and Fleur di Lis, and the most popular, the Elegance burner. Katie asked about the Elegance burner, “what sort of flame pattern is that”? asked Katie. Sarah told Katie that this was a pattern that would give you a rustic fire pattern look, flames all over the burner and in a random pattern.

Katie said she would go with that model. Although she loved the idea of having that Martini Glass at her next party on her new outdoor patio, she thought the practical choice would be the Elegance burner. After Katie decided on the Elegance burner, it was time to pick the fire glass colors. Sarah showed Katie 24 different colors to choose from, black gold, copper, red, and blue and so on. There were even fire glass with reflective and non-reflective features.

Katie was floored that she could match colors of her patio, house and more. She wanted to really make this table pop with the other colors she already had going on in these areas. Katie had her mind set on the Copper, Gold Reflective, Black Reflective, and little bit of Azuria Reflective, all of which would match the colors of her house and patio perfectly. Great choices exclaimed Sarah, they will really go well with the Tropical Elegance.

The Wickers Explore Oriflamme Fire Pit Options

February 18th, 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

 With the Wicker family all huddled around the phone, and Katie and Thomas intently listening to Sara from All Backyard Fun describe in detail their next purchase, Katie is worried about the how the fire table will keep the rain, dirt, debris, and critters out of the fire glass and burner. Sara explains to Katie that every Oriflamme Fire Table comes with a protective lid which covers the entire burner assembly and fire glass, which makes Katie feel at ease.

At this point Katie wanted to learn more about the sizes and styles of table tops available for the Oriflamme Fire Table; in particular, she fell in love with the Tropical Brown Elegance granite. Sara told Katie that the Tropical Brown Elegance granite was available in the following sizes, 42” Round, 48” Round, 45” Octagon, and 40” Square. Sara also mentioned there were four other colors of granite which included; Giallo Fiorito, Giallo Santo, Black Galaxy, and Blue Pearl.

Katie had her mind set on the Tropical Brown granite but was undecided on its size. She turned to Thomas for his help, and Thomas stated that the larger size (48” Round) would be too big for the patio area, and they would have to choose the 42” Round. Great choice exclaimed Sara; our most popular table we sell here at All Backyard Fun is the 42” Round Tropical Elegance.

The entire Wicker family cheered as Katie had made here choice of the table top color and size for the Oriflamme Fire Table. It was now time to choose the burner and the fire glass.

The Wickers and the Oriflamme Fire Table

February 11th , 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

 Last week when we left the Wicker house, Katie and Thomas were in the process of hearing the key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table from the sales representative Sara from All Backyard Fun. After hearing the key features, Katie asked about roasting marshmallows, something her son Johnny was so excited to do. Absolutely exclaimed Sara, we encourage this! Katie then asked, how do I clean the pretty fire glass that is in the center of the burner? Sara explained that the glass is very easy to clean in either a colander or 5 gallon pail, it washes off easily.

As Katie and Thomas continued to learn more about the Oriflamme Fire Table, Thomas grabbed the phone to ask a specific question that he wanted to know, is my beer going to get warm when it sits on the table? Sara, from All Backyard Fun, explained to Thomas not to worry as there is no transfer of heat to the table, so the beer will remain cool and the table safe for any pets and kids. Thomas was relieved.

By this point all the kids were huddled around Thomas and Katie listening intently to their conversation with Sara from All Backyard Fun, getting very excited about what their parents might buy for their patio. McKenzie (6), and Tommy (10) all had visions of how fun it would be to sit around a fire at night on their patio.

Katie jerked the phone back from Thomas and asked Sara to describe more about the custom options that the Oriflamme Fire Table has. Sara outlined to Katie that she can personalize her table with the size and material of the table top, fire glass, powder coating, as well as additional accessories. Katie was most interested in the granite table and wanted to learn more about that.

The Wickers Buy a Fire Pit

February 4th , 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

Excitement filled the Wicker house on Saturday morning as Thomas and Katie told the kids what they were going to buy for the patio. Johnny, the four year old was thrilled and quickly asked if they can roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Katie explained to Johnny that it was called a fire table, an Oriflamme Fire Table, and I don’t know, but I think so.

Katie could hardly wait to call All Backyard Fun to inquire further about the Oriflamme Fire Table and talk to them before they made the purchase. With Thomas sitting by her side, she made the call to All Backyard Fun and it was answered with a friendly voice of Sara, “Good morning, thank you for calling All Backyard Fun, how can I help you?”

Katie was so excited she rattled off about three questions to Sara about the Oriflamme Fire Table, “What tables do you have in stock, what are the lead times, can I choose any table top I wish?” Sara calmly responded with a confident yes to all three questions and began working closely with Katie on identifying her exact needs.

Sara explained to Katie about the key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table, such as, the self-contained 20 lb. propane tank, the heat source being 65,000 BTU’s, that the burn times last between 10-16 hours, all of which Katie already knew. But there were some new features that Katie and Thomas had not heard before in which they were thrilled about. Sara explained that the Oriflamme Fire Table is portable, can be converted to natural gas, already assembled with no tools necessary for set-up, and even has a bottle opener!

Katie asked Sara from All Backyard Fun to hold for a minute as she had a chance to explain to Thomas some of the additional key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table.

Keeping up with the Wickers

“Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

It was a crisp spring evening in the Midwest when Thomas and Katie Wicker put the kids to bed early for a Friday evening of relaxation and conversation when they walked out onto their patio. They quickly realized it was too cold for them to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful night. Both became frustrated and upset that they could not enjoy the evening together outside on their patio.

Without a heat source on their patio to keep them warm, their evening soon turned stale. Katie mentioned to Thomas that she had found an outdoor patio furniture website called All Backyard Fun, and a solution to extending their seasons and enjoying their patio year round with an outdoor gas fire table.

Katie explained to Thomas that the Oriflamme Fire Table, as it was called, ran on a self-contained 20 lb. propane tank and sat at standard coffee table height which intrigued Thomas. Thomas was excited to hear the 19” height of the table was going to provide them with more heat than anything else he had previously seen, because this was lower to the ground. Katie also mentioned that the Oriflamme Fire Table can put off 65,000 BTU’s of heat and last for 10-16 hours on one propane tank. This delighted Thomas, as he loves to spend hours outside with Katie and bringing his family and friends together.

After about an hour of discussion, Thomas and Katie agreed that this was going to be their next purchase for their outdoor space, and it was to be the Oriflamme Fire Table from All Backyard Fun.

Christmas Ideas for Your Patio

Christmas Patio Gift Ideas Pt. 1

As we enter into the holidays and people are doing their Christmas shopping, we get phone calls and e-mails asking if there are gift ideas for the patio this Christmas. We love getting these calls, as our talented customer service and sales team knows our products very well and can recommend a number of products for a patio or deck. I asked them what are some of the more common ideas and what is one or two unique gift ideas. If you have suggestions, please add them in the comments. By no means is this an exhaustive list either, but rather a few suggestions from everyone here at All Backyard Fun.

1. Alfesca Fornetto Wood Fired Oven and Smoker

What’s better than smoked meats? How about the ability to also bake pizzas? This Alfresca Fornetto Wood Fired Oven and Smokers is designed to warm quickly, so this outdoor oven reaches optimal baking temperature in minutes. Adjustable ventilation controls allow precision cooking. Ample shelving and a detachable smoker chip box expand the oven’s versatility, letting you smoke, roast, or bake everything from cookies to pizza, meats to pies.

Soundcast Outcast Jr.

 

We’ve all been there, you’re outside and the sun is shining and you decide to have a party. Finding a speaker or system with great sound quality and rugged enough to be outside is hard, so the good folks at Soundcast engineered the Outcast Jr. speaker for all your outdoor music needs. This system is shipped without transmitter so that if you wish to use the UAT or later add a second OutCast Jr. for left and right channel configurations which the system is capable, of you can do so. There is an alternative system that includes the iCast transmitter.

The Hampton Marine Grade Polymer High Back Chair is made using prime HDPE, a durable material that will not rot, swell, blister, fade or chemically break down when exposed to humidity, water or sunlight. The material is 100% recyclable as well as environmentally friendly. MGP is easy to clean and is proudly made in the USA. Not to mention, this chair is very comfortable! There is a padded sling option, and I would definitely recommend that option as the padded fabric is much more comfortable than the standard sling fabric.

Venetian-Fire-Table

Oriflamme Venetian Marble Gas Fire Pit Table

As we enter the shoulder season of the patio furniture market, we are building programs and systems for next year so we can improve our customers’ experience and satisfaction. One area that we are always improving on is our selection of Oriflamme fire tables and the imagery associated with these beautiful tables, including the Oriflamme Venetian Marble Gas Fire Pit Table

It’s not very often we get to photograph a 42″ round Venetian Marble fire table because whenever we do get them in stock, they are usually sold very quickly!  So I jumped at the chance to photograph this table because I had never seen one in person, let alone photograph one! I love this beautiful tiled table that mimics the look of Venetian marble, and will provide all the warmth you could want for your backyard.
