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.

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

What Do Fire Tables Run On?

What fuel do fire tables use?

One common question that we often get when a customer first comes across a gas fire table or fire pit is, “what do fire tables run on?” It’s a great question to ask and there are a couple of different answers that we will break down the differences between.

Propane
The first, a perhaps most common, fire table fuel sources is propane. Also known as liquid propane (LP for short), propane is a refined fuel that is fairly common across most of North America. It’s popular as a fuel for gas grills, patio heaters and even pools in some areas. One advantage of having a propane fueled fire table is that it makes the fire table moveable around your deck or even to other locations. Some customers even enjoy taking their fire tables tailgating at a sporting event!

Natural Gas
The other very common fuel source for fire pit tables is natural gas. Natural gas is common in many areas of North America, and it’s becoming more popular for fixed-features like gas fire pits, pools, and outdoor kitchen ranges. It’s a great option for those who are certain of the spot they want their fire table and would rather hook it up to a fuel line to avoid refilling tanks.

With either option, fire tables are becoming very popular in backyards everywhere. If you’re unsure which option is best for you, look for a fire table that is easily convertible to both fuel sources. One great example is the Oriflamme Fire Table, which offers a natural gas converter for a minimal cost and it’s easy to set up. Make sure to weigh the costs of either refilling propane tanks or running the natural gas line to the fire table location too. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be sure that it will help create a great backyard atmosphere when paired with a fire table!
