A Spooky Fun Way to Surprise Your Neighbors & Friends! | The Sarasota Moms

The upcoming holidays of 2020 will be unlike any years before and we are searching for fun, safe ways to celebrate.  With Halloween just a few weeks away, the unknown status of trick or treating, and many of our favorite Halloween events canceled, we are looking for creative ways to celebrate this kid-favorite holiday.  Local Sarasota yard sign company, Sunshine Yard Cards, has a solution!  They have created an amazing way to “Boo” your neighbors and friends and the best part is, it’s contactless! The Sunshine Team will set up a Boo Display along with a bag of treats in the yard of your chosen house.  The idea is to spread the “boo” around town. We asked Alaina Elliott, owner of Sunshine Yard Cards, to tell us more about this fun idea.


Why do you think yard signs are so popular right now?

We often get asked why yard signs are so popular right now. Yard Signs are such a fun way to celebrate a special occasion you would think they would have been popular long ago. Our clients tell us all the time, “why didn’t I do this sooner?” when we are picking up their display.

It seems like the idea of putting big yard signs in a front yard may have started out west and migrated across the country as a new tradition for celebrations. Of course, social distancing has increased visibility and made yard signs a “thing”. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other special celebrations didn’t stop just because we couldn’t be physically close to friends and family. Now we are seeing yard signs being used in the party as naturally as cake and balloons. People needed to get creative when it comes to celebrating events and milestones and they discovered that there are other fun and unique ways to celebrate. Yard Signs from Sunshine Yard Cards are a great way to do that!

How did you come up with the Boo idea?

Our family is kind of nuts for Halloween. We have been boo’ing our friends for years during the month of October. Since we enjoy that tradition so much and we had the ability to create the ultimate boo setup with our yard sign designs, it was just a natural progression. Boo’ing our friends is so much fun, we wanted to make it easy for our friends and clients in Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and Bradenton to boo their friends too.

What’s included in the Boo package?

Our Boo Yard Sign display is a multi-piece yard sign. It includes fun Halloween elements like ghosts, pumpkins, and even a massive, smiling, candy corn. Any great Boo must include a bag of treats so our Boo Yard sign comes with one as well.




How much does it cost?

We created this Halloween yard sign display for our clients to be able to Boo their friends and neighbors without costing a whole lot. We would really love to see the boo displays in yards throughout the area all October long so we have priced the Boo yard sign from Sunshine Yard Cards with that in mind. Clients that live near Sunshine Yard Card headquarters in the Lakewood Ranch area can Boo their friends (or themselves) for $30 per night. For anyone that lives outside of the Lakewood Ranch area, we will add a small delivery fee.

What areas will you cover?

Sunshine Yard Cards services Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, Venice, and Parish. We are offering a delivery special for the Boo Yard Sign display in the Lakewood Ranch area.

What other displays do you offer?

Sunshine Yard Cards offers Yard Signs for birthdays, anniversaries, welcome home, graduation, and much more. We have a huge inventory of yard signs so we can help celebrate anything. If we don’t have it, we think what makes us special is our ability to design custom yard signs based on our client’s individual needs. This really allows us to offer yard sign displays for any occasion. We have been able to help clients celebrate adoptions, send positive messages from loved ones who live across the country, and help create awareness for childhood cancer.

We think we are pretty unique in our capacity to offer custom imagery and phrases in our yard signs. Additionally, we don’t add extra fees for extra letters, longer phrases, more “bling”, or designing custom work. We love it when clients call us up and tell us about their party theme and then we collaborate with them to design the perfect yard sign for their celebration.
