While I have really, really enjoyed the fresh baked pies and other food at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch I have also enjoyed seeing how the signs we crafted have been enhanced with all manner of creative landscaping and displays. The Vala’s talented crew have built rock planters around the bases of the signs and then filled them with colourful pumpkins or flowers. It makes a big difference, magnifying the presence of the sign. While I stood quietly to the side observing I have noticed overheard many guests commenting on the signs and then taking the time to pose family in front to take a picture. We know these pictures are shared on social media with family and friends multiplying the effectiveness of the signs in the process.
