Hammered Copper Gas Fire Table (2)

The Oriflamme Gas Fire Table Difference

For more than a decade All Backyard Fun  has been the industry leader in outdoor casual furniture and gas fire pit tables. And given that we only offer the highest quality outdoor furniture and fire tables, we have many satisfied customers who have had their furniture as long as we have been in business!

In today’s post we’re going to share a little more about what makes the Oriflamme gas fire tables different.

1. Oriflamme Gas Fire Tables Are Built To Last!

The photo below belongs to a customer in Minnesota who has had their Designing Fire Oriflamme gas fire table for 10+ years. We can tell the age of the table by the finish of the top and the design on the base. Please Note: This specific granite color and base style is no longer made.

Other than some rust and discoloration on the fire table lid (which is replaceable), the granite on the table and the base are in mint condition. Even in the harsh Minnesota winters, wiping the table twice a year with a granite sealer will allow the table to maintain its finish and prevent hairline cracks as the temperature

2.  DESIGNING FIRE WAS FIRST TO MARKET – ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS!

Designing Fire is the original creators of the fire table concept. For more than 15 years they have been designing beautiful fire tables with high quality craftsmanship. They are the first manufacturer to design tables with tanks that store inside the fire table. Finally, they also designed a proprietary burner system and are the only tables that offer dual standard 20# propane tank storage capacity inside the base of the fire table.

Headquartered in Pierre, SD, if you need any  fire table replacement parts to be replaced such as the control knob or a regulator, all of the replacement parts can be easily found at the manufacturer and shipped within 2 business days from their factory!

3. DUAL PROPANE TANK STORAGE CAPACITY

The Oriflamme gas fire tables as of this writing are the only fire table on the market that have a dual propane tank capacity on any models with a 40″ or larger size table top. The tables that support dual propane tank capacity are:

All models 40″ Square

All models 42″ Round

All models 48″ Round

All models 45″ Octagon

Dual propane tank storage

The tanks store inside the fire table neatly under the burner. To replace the tanks you need to lift out the fire table burner using a special wire handle tool that ships with your fire table. Because of the burner’s proprietary design, the burner plan is flat like a pizza pan and weighs approximately 13 lbs with the glass.  See how the table is set up and the tanks are stored in the following setup video shown in point #4, below.

4. Quick & Easy Set Up – NO TOOLS REQUIRED!

The Oriflamme fire tables are smartly designed. The table is easy to assemble and requires no tools. The short assembly video below gives an overview of how the table arrives and how to assemble it.

5. Low Maintenance Gas Fire Table

The Oriflamme tables are made to be outdoors year round regardless of the climate where you live. We suggest an all-weather protective cover and per the manufacturer you should seal your gas fire table so that it can withstand the elements and temperature changes from season to season.

Most the replacement parts are universal for the 38″ to 48″ size models and can be easily obtained through the manufacturer. As the manufacturer does not work with the consumer direct, you can place your order for fire replacement parts directly through All Backyard Fun.

As you can see, not only does Oriflamme make beautiful fire tables, they are fully functional and are made to last. We invite you to check out our entire line of Oriflamme gas fire tables. And if you are already a fan we’d love to see your photos and here why you love your Oriflamme gas fire table!

Fall into Family and Warmth with a Gas Fire Table

With the fall season and cool days and nights, gas fire tables are a “must” if you love the fall season and spending time with friends and families.

Dating back to ancient times, gathering around a fire has been a way to build community and also used for healing and heat. There’s something about a fire that creates warmth and intimacy and allows us to feel connected.

However, in our modern day times, there are some precautions you need to take when dealing with fires in your backyard — that’s why a fire pit table is the perfect solution. Our fire tables at All Backyard Fun have controllable flames and do not produce any soot or embers. The control knob allows you to keep fires safely enclosed and contained.

We also have a variety of sizes and shapes available, from mini fire tables by Oriflamme if you have a small space or just want to use it for 1 or 2 people.

Or you can choose a larger table 6 feet plus if you want to host a larger group. Whatever your entertaining style, there’s sure to be a fire pit that suits your needs.

Create Warm Memories with Outdoor Fire Pits

Fire pits have come a long way since the basic metal enclosures you find at campgrounds. Today, modern fire pits come in a variety of designs that you’ll love to show off in your backyard. Fire pits beckon guests to stay longer, have another drink and catch up on old times. There’s something about sitting around an open flame that makes guests want to unwind and recall fond memories. Even simple family nights or an evening nightcap with your significant other take on a special feel when you’re sitting around a beautiful roaring fire.

Throw a Fabulous Party: Fire Pit Ideas

A fire pit adds another dimension to parties and social events and can enhance just about any backyard event. Host a late evening dinner party and invite guests to dine “al fresco” and enjoy their meal outside. Sipping wine by the fire enhances its aroma and creates a romantic atmosphere. Game nights take on a more exotic feel when cast under the flickering glow of a fire. If you want family fun, re-create the adventure of a campsite by roasting s’mores and telling ghost stories from the comfort of your backyard. There are an endless amount of fire pit ideas you can think of, just by brainstorming for a few minutes.

How to Find the Perfect Outdoor Fire Pit

Finding the perfect fire pit is a matter of how you’ll most likely use it. If it’s for show, a fire bowl is a free-standing concrete decor piece that accents your backyard and adds light and dimension. Wood-burning fire pits come in a variety of sizes and can be used on your patio or in the yard. Wood-burning fire pits are less expensive, but they do require you to start a kindling fire. For those who don’t want to fuss with wood, lighters or a gas-powered flame fire table is the perfect solution. These fire pits and tables turn on and off with the flick of a switch and create the perfect fire every time.

To find your perfect fire pit, fire bowl, or fire table, take a look at what All Backyard Fun has to offer. All Backyard Fun brings you the best in backyard fire pits, patio furniture, and accessories at discount prices.

Tips for Buying an Outdoor Fire Pit Table

Founded more than a decade ago, All Backyard Fun was one of the first online casual furniture stores selling fire pit tables, drop in burners and fire glass long before they became a household name.

Today, with many options to buy an elegant fire table or build your own fire pit, the shopping experience can be overwhelming at times. And many of the customers we work with may not consider what they will like or don’t like until after they received the product.

Our mission is to help you decide on a fire table that you and your family will love for years to come. Here’s a few tips we suggest when considering your first (or next) fire pit:

 

  1. BTU Output: The British Thermal Unit or BTU is what measures how much heat your fuel source can put out. Some of our fire tables put out up to 90,000 BTU’s whereas our Crossfire brass burners can put out in excess of 450,000 BTU’s. YoungLife_Golf_gave_away_a_gas_fire_table
  2.  Fuel Source: Wood, Propane or Natural Gas? All of the fire tables we offer have the capacity to work with standard 20# propane gas tanks or you can run your own natural gas line.  For those considering a wood burning fire pit, it’s important to know that wood produces embers and in many cities where they have hazards and danger of wildfires, these type of open flame options are not permitted because you cannot control the flame size like you can with your fire table. Also, wood burning pits produce soot and the smell gets into your clothing and the smoke is not good for children or people with upper respiratory infections.NaturalHammeredCopperFireTable
  3.  Building Material: If you are building your own fire pit stone and brick are the most common finishing material. However, it is important to note what is in your surrounding – materials and colors. Stone and brick are low maintenance and made to be outdoors. For pre-made fire tables, we offer other options such as granite fire tables, hammered copper and cast aluminum depending on what type of look you are seeking.gasfiretablesvanahstone-copy
  4. Fire Media: The “fire media” is the term given to the special material such as lava rock, eco glass beads, tumbled fire glass or faux wood burning logs that you use to fill the burner of your fire table. The fire media helps to further define the look you are going for such as rustic or contemporary.Oriflamme Blue Pearl Fire Table
  5. Height: The height of your table largely depends on application. Standard coffee table height is about 21 ¾” which makes it conducive to having friendly conversation while seating and eating. This is also an ideal height if you just want to sit around your pit in some low seating chairs such as the classic Adirondacks.  You can choose or build a higher pit but take into consideration your fuel source type; ease of maintenance; if it is suitable for conversation to others standing on the other side of the fire pit; and if the heat output will be sufficient.OriflammeTablewithMarshmallows6. Location: Where will you put your fire pit? Depending on your fuel source, it may be a permanent fixture. All of our tables we offer at All Backyard Fun have the capacity to use propane and be converted to natural gas later. This is an important consideration if you are still in the process of redesigning your outdoor living space. However, not all fire tables in the market offer this capacity.Terrace Curved Sectional

15 Reasons We Love the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table

As the country’s first and leading distributor for the Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables, the team at All Backyard Fun has gained extensive experience in product information, sales, technical support and installation since it’s introduction to the market more than a decade go.

The introduction of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table was the first of its kind bringing outdoor elegance together with the concept of ‘designed fire’. The patent pending burner and vibrant colored fire glass added additional options to personalize the tables to the customer’s reason or season.

While many fire pit tables, none have been able to quite effectively compete with the ingenuity and beautiful design of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table.

 ORIFLAMME FIRE TABLE FEATURES & DIFFERENTIATORS:

In addition to the reasons featured in the photo, here are 15 MORE reasons why we love Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables and hope you will love them too!

  1. It will warm you up! The Oriflamme fire pit table not only provides a beautifully designed piece of furniture, it actually produces warmth. Oriflamme is truly one of the ‘hottest’ tables on the market with a heat source of up to 75,000 BTU’s
  2. Coffee Table height. You can sit down comfortably and enjoy conversation with friends and it will work complimentary (design & functionality) to most outdoor patio sets. Coffee table height table is 21 3/4 inches.
  3.  Long burn time. The burn time lasts an average of 16-18 hours on high with two tanks (but can last up to 35 hours depending on outdoor conditions and flame height)
  4.  Adjustable flame change the height from low to high for warmth or ambiance
  5. Heat comes from the bottom – and why does this matter? Because if the heat comes from the bottom of the table and it rises – the warmth will be felt at the level in which you are seated. Other fire pit tables heat from the top meaning the fire warms ‘the sky’ and not you (unless you are standing and slightly tilting toward it).
  6. The tanks are neatly contained inside the table – The tanks are not external and therefore need to be hidden because they are unsightly. (see our video below that outlines how and where the tanks are stored)
  7. Easy to assemble (No tools are required) – You can have your fire pit set up and ready to go in minutes 
  8. Easy Off Switch – Designed with hidden switch (push and ignite the flame to light and simply turn off when you are done).
  9. Table components are interchangeable – If there are any problems you can fix that part without worrying about having to send your entire table in to be serviced.
  10.  Natural gas component kit available – This fire pit table uses 2 propane tanks but if you want to customize it and run natural gas to it that is an option as well
  11. Hoses are available for larger remote propane tanks
  12. MADE IN THE USA! Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are proudly made in the midwest United States and each table is handcrafted and made to order.
  13. SUSTAINABLE With Proven Market! The Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are here to stay. They have been on the market for more than a decade and are not a seasonal or limited production table. They have a classic timeless look and will hold up for years to come. You can find product reviews easily online and rest assured knowing that if any problems occur with the table you can call the manufacturer and obtain replacement parts with ease.
  14. Clean & Elegant Design – Many customers love the clean and elegant design. Whether you invest thousands of dollars on your outdoor living space or you want your patio to look like a million bucks, the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table has a very classy design. It is constructed of the highest quality and the powder coat has a 7 year warranty against rust so it is made to withstand the elements year round!
  15. Trusted by Major Brands – The Oriflamme Fire Pit Table has been sold worldwide. We have customers from Southern California to Sweden (yes, we ship worldwide)! And they have been used in commercial settings everywhere.

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.

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.

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.

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