When gathering ideas it is important to use your resources. Most importantly, requesting information from the guest of honor and if they are not sure ask questions. This can be done by asking them questions that will make their personality stand out. Certain cartoon characters, colors, animals, times in their life, culture, and entertainment are a start to what might personalize their party preparations. Birthday parties are most commonly designed around the guest of honor by their gender and age. If you or the guest of honor is having a hard time choosing a theme even after questioning personal interests, an easy trick to try is to run to the bakery. Many times they will have a cake book that shows cakes of different themes.
Format the checklist. Sure, you could simply post the checklist on your website. But a little extra effort on the design front can make your checklist feel more special and valuable. If you don\'t have graphic design resources in_house, your copywriter should be able to recommend a qualified designer. Distribute your list. Once you have the finished checklist, it\'s time to get it in the hands of your prospects. Consider adding it as a downloadable PDF to your website, e_mailing it to your mailing list, sending it along with a sales letter, writing about it on your blog and even issuing a press release to announce its availability.
