All Backyard Fun loves that not only we have an opportunity to educate our greater community on the construction of outdoor furniture and how gas fire table works but also that we get to help such a great cause!

During the 9 day event the team at All Backyard Fun spoke to thousands of visitors about our unique collection of beautifully crafted Oriflamme gas fire pit tables. And we also introduced them to some of the most popular patio sets from this season’s Casual Market Chicago furniture industry trade show such as our SunVilla Laurel Deep Seating Collection.

With a ‘mini showroom’ incorporated to our trade show booth, visitors could come and hang out on one of our super comfy deep seating patio sets and see our Oriflamme gas fire tables in action. They could also touch and feel fabrics, frame and peruse a variety of swatch and urban fire glass colors.

Congratulations to all the great folks we met who left with a fun new patio setup like this sweet couple below – testing out their new Northcape Bainbridge 3 piece Sectional featured with the Oriflamme Blue Pearl Granite gas fire table. (Note: Image colors slightly vary because we are indoors).

Why We Love Black Friday

Why We Love Black Friday

At All Backyard Fun we are counting down to outdoor patio furniture specials from all our favorite collections including Northcape International, Polywood, Oriflamme and Desert Steel outdoor accessories among others!

Dating back to the early 1930’s, Black Friday was the name given to the first major shopping day for Christmas (which falls the Friday after Thanksgiving). This is the shopping day of the year where most businesses earn their first positive revenues or go from the red to the ‘black’ in their accounting.

Thus it is a popular ritual now where retail stores and online e-tailers are known to offer their most aggressive discounts and sales of the year. ‘Tis the season of buy one get one’s, half off’s, free give-aways, and doorbuster deals.

BLUE PEARL

The savviest shoppers have been researching and planning what they’re going to buy and who they’re going to buy it from. It’s no secret e-commerce has driven retailers to compete with one another to offer consumers ridiculously great sales during the holidays.

Nowadays, .com retailers fight to get their sale out first. For example, Black Friday no longer starts on the Friday after Thanksgiving, instead it starts the Friday before Thanksgiving. So, if you’re an online retailer you better have your sales ready to go, or you’ll be scratching your head when you don’t meet your holiday sales goals.

home-and-garden

We love Black Friday because offering aggressive deals also helps to minimize our store inventory. This in turn helps us lower our overhead and the inventory we will have to do at the end of the year! So for specialty furniture stores like All Backyard Fun this time of season is our ‘slow season’ and the sales offers allows our customers to pick up some of their favorite patio sets and outdoor furniture pits at a great deal. And we are able to make space for everything that will be offered for the spring of the next buying season.

For obvious reasons, sales have slowed compared to in-season sales. Depending on location, most people in the country aren’t buying or even thinking about outdoor furniture during the winter.

Regardless of the time of year, All Backyard Fun is a  small family owned business and always working to offer the best products at the best prices that we believe your whole family will enjoy. That’s why we love Black Friday!

It is the time of season we can offer our customers unbeatable prices on patio furniture, fire tables, and backyard accessories like we never have before. So don’t fret, All Backyard Fun has your patio covered this year with amazing doorbuster deals you won’t find anywhere else!

15 Reasons We Love the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table

As the country’s first and leading distributor for the Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables, the team at All Backyard Fun has gained extensive experience in product information, sales, technical support and installation since it’s introduction to the market more than a decade go.

The introduction of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table was the first of its kind bringing outdoor elegance together with the concept of ‘designed fire’. The patent pending burner and vibrant colored fire glass added additional options to personalize the tables to the customer’s reason or season.

While many fire pit tables, none have been able to quite effectively compete with the ingenuity and beautiful design of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table.

OriflammeBenefits

 ORIFLAMME FIRE TABLE FEATURES & DIFFERENTIATORS:

In addition to the reasons featured in the photo, here are 15 MORE reasons why we love Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables and hope you will love them too!

  1. It will warm you up! The Oriflamme fire pit table not only provides a beautifully designed piece of furniture, it actually produces warmth. Oriflamme is truly one of the ‘hottest’ tables on the market with a heat source of up to 75,000 BTU’s
  2. Coffee Table height. You can sit down comfortably and enjoy conversation with friends and it will work complimentary (design & functionality) to most outdoor patio sets. Coffee table height table is 21 3/4 inches.
  3.  Long burn time. The burn time lasts an average of 16-18 hours on high with two tanks (but can last up to 35 hours depending on outdoor conditions and flame height)
  4.  Adjustable flame change the height from low to high for warmth or ambiance
  5. Heat comes from the bottom – and why does this matter? Because if the heat comes from the bottom of the table and it rises – the warmth will be felt at the level in which you are seated. Other fire pit tables heat from the top meaning the fire warms ‘the sky’ and not you (unless you are standing and slightly tilting toward it).
  6. The tanks are neatly contained inside the table – The tanks are not external and therefore need to be hidden because they are unsightly. (see our video below that outlines how and where the tanks are stored)
  7. Easy to assemble (No tools are required) – You can have your fire pit set up and ready to go in minutes 
  8. Easy Off Switch – Designed with hidden switch (push and ignite the flame to light and simply turn off when you are done).
  9. Table components are interchangeable – If there are any problems you can fix that part without worrying about having to send your entire table in to be serviced.
  10.  Natural gas component kit available – This fire pit table uses 2 propane tanks but if you want to customize it and run natural gas to it that is an option as well
  11. Hoses are available for larger remote propane tanks
  12. MADE IN THE USA! Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are proudly made in the midwest United States and each table is handcrafted and made to order.
  13. SUSTAINABLE With Proven Market! The Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are here to stay. They have been on the market for more than a decade and are not a seasonal or limited production table. They have a classic timeless look and will hold up for years to come. You can find product reviews easily online and rest assured knowing that if any problems occur with the table you can call the manufacturer and obtain replacement parts with ease.
  14. Clean & Elegant Design – Many customers love the clean and elegant design. Whether you invest thousands of dollars on your outdoor living space or you want your patio to look like a million bucks, the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table has a very classy design. It is constructed of the highest quality and the powder coat has a 7 year warranty against rust so it is made to withstand the elements year round!
  15. Trusted by Major Brands – The Oriflamme Fire Pit Table has been sold worldwide. We have customers from Southern California to Sweden (yes, we ship worldwide)! And they have been used in commercial settings everywhere. From the Boulder (Colorado) Country Club to the Ritz Carlton and W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, if it meets their high quality standards we certainly hope and expect it will meet yours!

4 reasons why

4 Reasons to Buy Outdoor Patio Furniture From Specialty Stores

Your style is unique and personal, shouldn’t your outdoor patio furniture shopping experience be the same? We at All Backyard Fun take pride in being a small family owned business and outdoor living specialty store. While we have access to thousands of pieces of patio furniture from the leading manufacturers, as well as our brand, we also provide a full service personalized customer experience.

Barbados 9 piece set from AllBackyardFun.com

1. Durability – the reason the price tag is so high at a specialty store, such as All Backyard Fun, is because the furniture will last you for so many years that you’ll be buying a new sectional just because your current one is out of style!

2. Cushions – When you fish out the big bucks you’re also paying for comfort. Brand name furniture, sold at specialty stores, often offers plush yet firm cushions. The cushions are usually about 6”. If you buy from a box retailer, the cushions will usually be about 3”. At All Backyard Fun all of our cushions are made by Sunbrella and are UV & Mold Resistant. They can be power washed and with low maintenance will hold up beautifully for multiple seasons.

3. Warranty – Many brand name companies have over 10 years of warranty! If a company offers a long warranty policy, that means they believe in the quality of their product. Most box retailers offer products seasonally and leave you high and dry with a 1 year warranty and strict specifications.

4. Investing in Your Life – It may seem more cost effective to buy the cheap set today, but it won’t be a financially smart move in a year after you’ve spent hundreds on replacement costs, and will have to eventually buy a brand new set anyways.

BONUS: Benefit from a Personalized Experience – Call our All Backyard Fun Boulder, Colorado designer showroom at 1.800.451.2550 and you will speak to a live person who can support you with everything from choosing a fire pit table or patio set that will match with your pavers or decor and color palette. We can also help you find a speciality color fabric or replacement cushions to freshen up your existing outdoor patio set.

Ready For Spring

5 Ways to Get Your Backyard Ready For Spring Outdoor Living

Alas! Springtime is finally here, and that means it’s time to get your backyard and patio ready for late night cocktail gatherings, soaking up the sun in your lounger, and BBQ’s with the family. Here’s how you can start to get ready to have some fun in the sun!

  1. Survey Any Damage That May Have Occurred During the Winter.
    Is there any molding on your deck? Cracks in the concrete? Does your deck need to be resealed? If so, now’s the time!
  2. Give Those Bushes a Haircut!
    Trim and cut any out of control garden bed. Trimming will help keep trees and shrubs nice and compact. If you want to add a tropical vibe this spring, add some bamboo to your backyard.
  3. Add An Outdoor Heating Source
    It still remains pretty chilly when the sun goes down, so in order to remain an all-year round outdoor entertainer provide heat for your guests such as an outdoor fire pit.
  4. Give the BBQ A Power Clean
    It’s about that time to throw some shrimp on the barby! Start the barbeque season off right, with a clean shiny grill.
  5. Plan For Your Outdoor Furniture Space
    It might be time to replace your outdoor furniture. Maybe yours is worn out or maybe you’re looking for a fresh look this spring. Either way, take a look at the dimensions and plan for your new patio set!

Recycle Christmas Tree

5 Ways To Recycle Your Christmas Tree

It’s the sad time of year again where using the holidays as an excuse to exempt yourself from reality has expired.  It’s time to answer the email from Janice in accounting, and get back on track with real life. The beautiful Christmas tree in the corner of your family room that majestically transformed your entire house in to a winter wanderlust? Yeah, that has to go. Sad face. So what do you do with the tree you and your family decorated so elegantly? Here’s some ideas!

  1. Rinse, Re-use, Recycle! – Plant that guy right back where he came from. Of course it has to be a living tree with the roots still intact, but channel your inner hippie and enjoy your tree for many more years to come.
  2. Give back to Mother Nature – She has provided you with a glorious tree, now it’s your turn to give back to Mother Nature, and her animal friends. A nice way to get rid of your Christmas tree is by turning it in to a bird feeder. You can put it in the ground, or stay lazy and keep it in its stand. Get the kids involved – make a cranberry and popcorn string, toss some stale bread in and around it and… BOOM! You’ll have chickadees, cardinals, song sparrows, and many other birds of kin taking shelter in your backyard.
  3. Garden galore – Cut off the branches, and use the trunk to edge the garden you’ve been planning for so long now. Hello 2016 garden goals!
  4. Cozy on up – Feeling self-sustaining? Chop the tree up and use it as fire wood, duh!
  5. Recycle the boring way – Many communities will have tree-recycling programs. This is a nice way to give back to your community, as the program will chop the tree up and probably use the wood for parks and public spaces.
BLUE PEARL

Oriflamme Gas Fire Pit Table Blue Pearl Granite

Whenever we launch a new product, there is always excitement in the air but when it’s a new granite fire pit from Oriflamme…well then we are very excited! These beautiful tables are one of our biggest sellers and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they beautiful, but they are extremely functionable. It’s the marriage of form and function in a package that makes an eye-catching statement in any space.

The Blue Pearl Granite gas fire pit table features a blue hued granite that represents a major departure from the browns/grays of our standard granite fire tables. With the Blue Pearl being one of the newest in the family of fire tables from Oriflamme, demand is expected to be high over the course of the next year. With Oriflamme’s reputation of delivering a high-quality fire table, great customer service, and in most cases quick shipping; 2015 is shaping up to be a great year for All Backyard Fun and our relationship with Designing Fire.

Oriflamme Optima Granite Fire Table

The weather is finally cooling down a little bit and we are getting into the fringes of the holiday season! This means we are also getting inventory delivered in anticipation and get a chance to shoot some product photos of products that are difficult to keep in stock during the busy months. One of those products is the Oriflamme Optima Granite Fire Table by Designing Fire; a beautiful Giallo Santo granite fire table that features a lighter color granite and speckled black and rose in the granite veins.

We finally got a product photo shoot with this gorgeous table and everything that comes with the fire table. The standard powder coat with the Optima Granite Fire Table is a black powder coat (although Copper Vein is available upon request) and we didn’t have these product photos in our library either. To give an idea about how popular this table is, after this photo shoot we delivered this table to a local customer who had just purchased that table! Right now is a great time to buy this table as well, with lead times getting down to about 2 weeks if you order now you’ll have it long before Thanksgiving!
