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).

Finally, our Malibu curved sectional set with canvas rust cushions is a fun way to kick off the spring patio season along with the newest addition to the Oriflamme fire table collection – the natura hammered copper fire table.

A fire wind guard to preserve the flame during windy days, a wedge table nestled between the 2 curve sectionals and small bronze Georgia Lantern completes the set.

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!

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.

5 Ways to add life to your backyard

5 Ways to Add Life to Your Backyard

Over the last generation the ‘traditional backyard’ has significantly transformed from a square green box yard with a flip top grill and slip n slide to an outdoor casual living space.

Old school backyard fun - Wham O's Slip N Slide.

Old school all backyard fun – Wham O’s Slip N Slide.

Today the backyard is treated the same as any room in the home  where landscape architects and designers advise on effective and creative use of space; colors; outdoor patio furniture; and accessories. Outdoor kitchens and movie screens are now essential and no longer considered ‘extras’. And outdoor fire pits and tables have made it comfortable and fun to hang out in the backyard regardless of the time of day or season.

However, like most home renovation projects it is a seemingly never ending process where different areas of the yard get developed over time for a variety of reasons.

So what are some simple things you can you do in the meantime and in between time to liven up your backyard?

Here’s 5 of our staff’s picks to brighten your backyard:

 #1 Play that funky music!

Jazz up any outdoor space, rain or shine, with an outdoor music player such as the Outcast family of multimedia entertainer products. Up to 20 hours battery life and 300 feet of broadcast area (depending on model). Music players are water resistant and portable so you can enjoy all your favorite tunes by the pool or at your lakefront home.

Melody music player, available at All Backyard Fun

 #2 Get cooking with colorful outdoor appliances

Your family will be saying Bon Appétit once they see the delicious eats and treats that you create in this gorgeous red Fornetto Wood Fired Oven & Smoker with removable Smoker Box

Whip up some quick kid friendly snacks like sausage rolls or smoke a whole chicken or sausages. Add red wine and good friends…sprinkle with laughs. Repeat often!

 #3 Heat up cool summer nights with a fire pit table

As one of the country’s largest distributors of Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables, this is no doubt where fun, family and backyards come together. Roast marshmallows or warm up with our family friendly gas fire pit tables.

Our Oriflamme fire pit tables are:

Clean burning – No more flying embers!

No Smoke – This is nice for children and people who may have asthma or other respiratory conditions

Accessorize – Add nice furniture around your fire pit without concern of soot or fabric smelling like smoke

Practical –  The granite tabletop is more than ‘pretty’, it’s also functional.  Enjoy drinks or cocktails while sharing good conversation with family and friends.

Switch on/Switch off: Turn your flame off using a knob. No need to worry about starting a fire or collecting wood to keep your fire burning on chilly nights.

 #4 Game on!

Enjoy a game with kid’s by day and with your fellow adult’s by night with our pair of LED throw bag games. Backyard games are a simple way to transform a space or repurpose an unusual space without having to build anything on it.

LED Bag Toss for outdoor fun during the day or night. Available at All Backyard Fun.

 #5 Get in an (Upper) New York State of Mind….

Named for the mountain chain in NY, our Adirondack chairs are made of polywood (recycled plastic bottles) and are unbelievably durable and holds up to all kinds of climates and seasonal weather. Listen to Frank Sinatra while sipping on Manhattan’s as you chill in these lively chairs that will make a statement in any conversation!

Regardless of the size of space you are working with, if you live in the city or countryside, don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through.

Looking for a special fabric or furniture request that you didn’t see on our site? If we carry the manufacturer or brand name product, we can probably custom order the product you are looking for. Call our store at 1-800-451-2550 to get a price and estimated shipping time.

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!
