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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.6. 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.

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!
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
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.
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)
Adjustable flame change the height from low to high for warmth or ambiance
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).
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)
Easy to assemble (No tools are required) – You can have your fire pit set up and ready to go in minutes
Easy Off Switch – Designed with hidden switch (push and ignite the flame to light and simply turn off when you are done).
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.
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
Hoses are available for larger remote propane tanks

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Cozy on up – Feeling self-sustaining? Chop the tree up and use it as fire wood, duh!
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.
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!
Are you ready for summer? As we embark on another Memorial Day, ask yourself, are we tired of sitting in those tired looking outdoor chairs where the cushions are faded and smashed? Don’t wait any longer, check out what All Backyard Fun has to offer.
“We’re providing a totally different experience”, says Heikke Nielsen. “Our staff takes a very consultative approach.” Their goal is to create “the perfect outdoor area for the customer” and to achieve what he calls “a boutique-like buying experience” his sales staff engages with customers, determining what their goals for their outdoor area are.
Up next is the selection process, including fabric, materials, sizing, overall color scheme and the possible inclusion of a propane or natural gas fire table. “Right now is the perfect time to buy”, Nielsen says, explaining that it’s still early enough to “enjoy your furniture for a whole season”. If your’re looking to spruce up your outdoor entertainment area, be sure to pay All Backyard Fun a visit both at their online store and in person.
Now that the Wickers knew that they had a gas fire table that was portable, they wanted to learn more about some of the accessories that came with the Oriflamme Fire Table. Sara from All Backyard Fun began to list of some of the accessories that were included, and some that were extra.
With every Oriflamme Fire Table you receive a propane tank, protective lid, and fire glass. There are a few accessories that I recommend that are not included, but are awesome features to the table. The all-weather cover comes in either brown, or black, fits to size and drapes down to the ground. This is a nice feature to have as a storage cover when you want to store it for the winter or off-season. The cost on this is $99.
The other accessory that is more fun than practical is the interchangeable ice bucket insert. So on the days that it is hot and you need to use the functional aspect of your table, you put the ice bucket into the table and fill up the bucket with you cold beverages! That option is also $99.
Katie and Thomas talked about the two accessories and agreed that they definitely would need both. We both love to entertain, and we also live in a climate where it matters to protect our outdoor furniture.
Tune in next week to hear more about the Wickers’ All Backyard Fun adventure and their quest to have the perfect patio.
As Sara addressed Thomas and Katie’s questions about the assembly and weight of the Oriflamme Fire Table, Katie was becoming very excited about her new purchase. She then wondered how portable it was. So she soon asked the question to Sara from All Backyard Fun, “How portable is the Oriflamme Fire Table”?
Great question, responded Sara. Sara explained to Katie that because of the table’s weight, and the fact the all the components are interchangeable, it was very easy to move around and it can easily be put in the back of a SUV or truck to bring camping, tailgating, or move to a new home.
Outstanding Katie exclaimed. We have an RV that we take camping in the summer time and this Oriflamme Fire Table would be a perfect addition to those late nights out by the water.
Sara agreed and she also mentioned that many of her customers move it across their deck or patio, and even bring the Oriflamme Fire Table to the front during Halloween and pass out candy. Tune in next week to hear more about the Wickers’ All Backyard Fun adventure and their quest to have the perfect patio.
Whenever we launch a new product, there is always excitement in the air but when it’s a new granite fire pit from Oriflamme…well then we are very excited! These beautiful tables are one of our biggest sellers and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they beautiful, but they are extremely functionable. It’s the marriage of form and function in a package that makes an eye-catching statement in any space.
The Blue Pearl Granite gas fire pit table features a blue hued granite that represents a major departure from the browns/grays of our standard granite fire tables. With the Blue Pearl being one of the newest in the family of fire tables from Oriflamme, demand is expected to be high over the course of the next year. With Oriflamme’s reputation of delivering a high-quality fire table, great customer service, and in most cases quick shipping; 2015 is shaping up to be a great year for All Backyard Fun and our relationship with Designing Fire.
