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!

Planning Your Outdoor Space

Sometimes when planning out an outdoor space, there are too many options and not enough ground rules. When getting inspired remember to think about what may work for your space and only your space. The outdoors can have a dramatic effect on how we use the space. If your backyard is a total blank canvas and has no preset design elements, think of how you would like to use the space and what you would do most in the space. For example, if you are thinking that you will use it as a retreat like setting set up areas for reading, listening to music or simply relaxing. If you think that you may entertain, make sure to incorporate seating through the use of a traditional table and chairs or around a fire pit table. This will ensure that your guest will have a comfortable spot to rest when they enjoy your yard. On the other hand, if you have children and need a play area for them as well, build a sand plot inside a planter like shape along the wall of your fencing. This will prove to be a very flexible spot for when they grow, you can focus on growing that garden you always wanted. Whichever direction your design goes, make sure to think about the use of space beforehand. This will ensure that you and your guests will enjoy your new outdoor space now and hereafter.

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.
