Feeling Happy!

What happens when you work with nice people who want to surprise their friends and family for their special event? What happens when those friends and family are surprised and made to feel extra special? What happens when you are able to do this on a regular basis as your job? This is what happens….you just feel happy!

It sounds very simple but it is true. You work with thoughtful, caring people who want to make people feel loved and special. Those recipients feel loved and special! We just get to do this for a job and deliver our fun signs to make everyone feel happy which in turn leaves us feeling happy all of the time!

Here are a few customer comments so you see what we mean:
“Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did with the signs in the yard. I wasn’t home when you came and I got to come home to a surprise too! The neighbors all went crazy over it, they loved it. He was very surprised!”-Laurie

“You did a great job! The little ones (siblings) were most excited to see their names on the sign!” Thanks so much.-Wayne

“Thanks again for the wonderful yard display. She was thoroughly surpised and very happy with the display and she thought it was really neat. She had a big party on Saurday night so she go many aditional compliments on it.”-Loriann

This customer surprised her husband for accomplishing his life-long dream of graduating from the fire academy. She was so proud of him and gave him an extra special surprise with our You Rock yard card signs. “Thanks for everything! You did an awesome job. I will recommend you in a heart beat!!”-Yomayra

We love the smiles and laughs we have been able to provide with our silly yard cards for so many special occasions. From Birthdays, Graduations, Anniverseries, and Retirements! We especially love the yard cards that people send just to make a big deal out of a Birthday that may not be celebrated with a large party, cake or gift. The yard card displays just make that day that could pass by unnoticed extra special. #feelinghappy

Cool Gators Waiting to Bask in Your Lawn

Yards-of-Fun is excited to announce our newest custom design… ALLIGATORS!
Big Gator Lawn Greeting
Bring the swamp to your front door! These fun, bright-green reptiles make the best surprise for a favorite little guy (or big boy). The big yard-card signs will fill up the lawn with about 30 gators and a large custom greeting.
Yards-of-Fun Gator Design with Blue Spirit Flag
Three different gator characters come with this lawn greeting design. Jumbo announcement headers include: “See Ya Later Alligator!” – perfect for older birth dates (Say Goodbye to Your Youth!!) and happy retirement send-off celebrations (Say Goodbye to Working and Hello to Retirement!!), and “Happy Birthday to our Favorite Lil’ Gator!” – ideal for every little boy on his special day, along with the traditional “Congratulations” – for graduation, winning season or play-offs, and “Happy Birthday” greetings.
Yards-of-Fun Gator Stomping Design
Know any big UF Gator fans? Order up a batch of these party-loving yard signs for your next sport celebration or kick-off party!

Don’t forget dad on Father’s day… these gators will grab attention more than a “colorful tie” (but he won’t have to wear it) and the kids will love it too!
Yards-of-Fun Thumbs Up Gator

This new Yards-of-Fun Gator Lawn Greeting design is scheduled to be available for ordering online by the end of next week… So watch out for these fun gators stomping through your neighborhood soon!

Yards-of-Fun Open House

Welcome to Yards-of-Fun! The Open House to introduce our new business was wonderful. Thank you to all family and friends that came out and showed their support. We greatly appreciate your interest and hope the word spreads about our fun “Yard Cards”!

Guests enjoyed a delicious selection of sweet treats, signed our memory mat to be framed and registered to win a free Yards-of-Fun lawn greeting to be delivered to a special person in their lives. Drum roll please… And the winners are: Beth Helfrich, Jane Dillard and Renee Rahaim. Congratulations!

Sample displays of our fun, custom jumbo greeting cards for the yard and in giant pots were scattered about. We had fabulous helpers on hand to help direct traffic (thanks Jeff and Spencer), to welcome guests and serve refreshments (thanks Maggie, Ansley, Kelsey, Claire, Ila, Sarah, and Hannah).

Thank you all for making our Yards-of-Fun Open House a big success. We look forward to delivering many happy surprises throughout Jacksonville and St. Augustine!
