Here's a helpful tip.

When writing your request instructions for a celebrity birthday greeting, try to be as specific as possible. For example, tell them about your relationship with the recipient, relevant numbers (like birthday year), and other relevant details.

Something like this:

My husband (Steve) is turning 35 on Sunday. Please wish him a happy birthday from me (Kate). We've been together for four years and met while tree planting in BC. He's a massive fan of yours — a bday shoutout from you would blow his mind!

After writing your request instructions, you provide your contact and payment information. That's all.

You're all set to book your special birthday wish from Cameo.
