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.

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.

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!

If you want to stay warm and stay healthy as you relax in your backyard, you would probably need one of those exotic Fire Bowls that you can enjoy in your backyard. Fire Bowls are available at AllBackyardFun. They are quite amazing because of their unique look . Overall, Fire Bowls work just like fire pits. They provide fire and warmth that you and you guests get to take advantage of and have fun with in your backyard.

But even though Fire Bowls have the same purpose as fire pits, they have outstanding qualities that fire pits do not generally have. Fire Bowls are quite fierce in the fire they put out. Compared to fire pits, their fires come in larger size giving more warmth, comfort and light. Even with great fire and heat intensity that fire bowls bring, you have the luxury to control this intensity. Fire Bowls have covers that make them shape like a dome or sphere. If you want more fire, light and warmth, you can open up the cover and fully expose the fire in all its glory. If you prefer to keep the intensity in moderation, you can keep the cover half open or at anyway you want it to match the comfort you desire.

Fire Bowls are great at keeping you warm and healthy as you dwell in a relaxation time in your backyard. If you are one of those people who easily catches a cold and gets sick from being outdoor, you need Fire Bowls’ warmth and comfort to protect you from getting sick.

Relaxation time is often associated with warm and comfortable feeling. And there is no other great resource to get these wonderful feelings other than with Fire Bowls. So, in case you are planning to relax outside of your home, right in your backyard, depend on Fire Bowls in providing you a great time.

Decorating My Wedding with Gas Fire Pits

When my fiance and I began to plan our wedding this Spring, I began to understand why little girls start dreaming up their weddings before elementary school; because of the massive amount of detail to the event. While I’m letting her handle all the finer points (like the difference between deep purple and plum color bridesmaid dresses) I have started to think of the other things people remember about weddings. Usually it’s not the color of the candles around the room or the table cloths, but things like the stories shared about the couple after the reception over a glass of wine. Since this is what I remember from weddings, I looked for something that could bring people together outside on the September night of our wedding.

I love being outside on a warm fall night with my fiancé, and that’s one of the reasons we picked a September date for our wedding. Having the reception at a place we could go outside was important to us, so we picked classic style club house overlooking the course. One thing I’m looking forward to having on the deck of the clubhouse is a gas fire table. The more I’ve looked into these particular fire tables, the more I’ve wanted one at our wedding reception. It looks classy but is a fun and interesting centerpiece for guests to mingle around after dinner. One idea we had for the fire pit is to set up some comfy chairs to sit around it in and then have a bag of marshmallows for the kids  (or adults!) to roast over the flame.

Since we have 3 different colors for our wedding, we could mix in those colors into the fire glass on the table to add a personal touch for the evening. Another fun idea to do with the fire glass would be to spell out the date or our names in glass in the gas burner. One  would be great to sit around with guests on a beautiful fall night. Since the deck on the clubhouse is larger, we could have a couple of different fire pits on the deck so more people could migrate outside. Since the fire pit would run on gas, no one will leave smelling like smoke or get dirty in the ashes. Anyone who has set up decorations at a wedding knows it could be a nightmare if it’s too complicated, but a fire table is so simple to set up  we won’t waste any time while we decorate.

I would love to look back on our wedding and see photos of people mingling, laughing and relaxing on a beautiful fall night. My fiancé and I both hope to have a classic wedding that people we will remember for a long time, and will have had a full night of enjoyment. Gas fire pits would be an awesome addition to a wedding reception, something people will remember sitting around for years to come!

Oriflamme Fire Pits a Great Fit for Generation Y

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA January 2011—-The Oriflamme Fire Table will be the perfect outdoor option for the nearly 80 million young people who make up Generation Y—those who were born between 1980 and the early 2000’s.

Why and how?

According to the Wall Street Journal, January 13, 2011, the real estate analysts at the NAHB (National Home Builder’s Association) conference in Orlando, Florida clearly indicated that Gen Y is not interested in mansions or big lawns to mow. More of them will choose to live in urban areas or urban like areas in the suburbs.

They are seeking smaller spaces, dining, and amenities within walking distance, and outdoor spaces to grill or spend time with friends.

For example, Tony Weremeichik of Canin Associates, an architecture firm in Orlando, suggested “outdoor fire pits”. He said, “Consider designing outdoor spaces as if they were living rooms.”

The Oriflamme Gas Fire Pits are the answer for Generation Y.

Unique, customizable and portable fire pits are perfect for entertaining or quiet evenings on decks or patios.

Generation Y will discover the beauty and ambiance of designed fire that truly fits their preferred lifestyle with the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table.
