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).

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.

5 Ways to Improve Your Patio for Fall

Football season is here, the days are getting shorter, and the nights are cooling down. Fall is here and at All Backyard Fun, we get  a lot of phone calls of people asking what to do with their patio for the fall and how to prepare for the winter.

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 the season 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.

Should You Cover Your Furniture

Should You Cover Your Patio Furniture?

Do you park your car in the garage? Would you park your car in a garage if you had the means? If you’re the type of person who likes to be better safe than sorry, or frequently hear yourself saying “nip it in the bud” (yes that’s the real expression), then I’d say you’re a patio furniture cover type of person. Like a car, I can bet you’ve spent hundreds or thousands on your patio furniture. When you spend a high amount of money on an item, you want said item to last; you expect it to last! If we lived in a perfect world, spending a thousand dollars on a wicker sofa would mean it would last you forever without any upkeep. But, we don’t live in a perfect world (*sigh*). You spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on a car, and even after all that money spent you still have to put more money into your vehicle to make sure it stays up and running. The same is true when it comes to outdoor furniture.  You have to take care of it. The good news is, it’s a lot cheaper to take care of than a car! Cover your club chairs or lounger when the winter rolls around, clean your fabric every so often, and treat it like you would the day you bought it. For those of you who like to live life on the wild side you can let Mother Nature take her course, and have your outdoor furniture fend for itself!

Keeping up with the Wickers

January 28th, 2015

“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.

Tune in next week to hear more about the Wickers’ All Backyard Fun adventure and their quest to have the perfect patio.

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!

Reds, yellows, greens, etc. you can put colored lighting strips on your plants and trees to make your garden get the right party atmosphere.

Whether you buy wooden or gas fire pits, we have a large variety available that you can choose from. So don’t wait, just use your laptop and start ordering the perfect outdoor table for your home.

Fire Table

A Fire Table is Easy to Set Up

Many people have traditional fireplaces in their homes which they never use, either because they do not have sufficient ventilation for smoke to disperse quickly or because they are too lazy to buy or gather and chop wood. A fire table is a great alternative to an old-fashioned fireplace however, as it combines design elegance with a heating device which sends heat out in 360 degrees. A fire table is easy to set up and does not present the fire hazard of jumping embers.

Fire Table Units are great for Entertaining

If you have a sizeable patio or deck area where you entertain, a fire table can make a great addition, increasing the comfort of your patio area. Even in the cold months, you can sit around your fire table and keep warm. Fire table accessories such as an ice bucket insert make fire tables equally useful in the heat of daytime in the summer, so that your fire table does not go to waste during this time.
