- What happens the night of my Yard Card delivery?
I will text you to let you know what time I will be at the home of your recipient. This way you can give someone at the house a heads up that I am coming if you need to. I always suggest letting someone know if possible so they won't be alarmed if they happen to see me in the yard. (even though I am there a short time) After I am finished setting the display up, I will text you a picture so you know everything is set up.
- How many items are included with my display?
Each display includes 28-32 different items including the message board. Based on availability, if you would like to mix and match any of our displays, you are more than welcome to. However, it you like to add additional items the pricing is as follows: $2.00 for each additional 2D sign and $3.00 for each additional 3D critter.
- How far in advance should I plan my suprise?

- What happens if the recipient sees me setting the display up?
I have been "caught" only once. Since then, I recommend you give someone at the house a heads up that I am coming in case they spot me in their yard and are wondering why I am there. I will text you that night to let you know what time I will be there so you can let someone at the house know when I will be there. I make no guarantees that the recipient will not come outside once I leave and see the display before morning. Setup times are between 8pm and 10pm during summer hours and between 7pm and 9pm during winter hours.
