The Swanky Chicks are so thrilled to be your guest blogger for the day! Swanky Chicks is your baby and bridal shower planning destination so we thought we would share with you a creative bridal shower idea. An around the clock bridal shower will ensure that the bride receives gifts she needs in all areas of her life, and give you a fun theme that you can really get creative with.
So what is an around the clock bridal shower? The shower focuses on the different “times” in a bride and grooms lives together and creates categories for gift-giving. This can be done in one of two ways , each guest is assigned an hour of the day or a time like breakfast time or party time. Your guests will have a ton of fun choosing gifts for their assigned time and the bride will receive everything from a waffle maker to lingerie.

Here is a simple poem for the invitations to explain the shower to your guests.
We’re having a party! And won’t it be fun
Many cheers and best wishes before we are done
A shower for (bride’s name), our esteemed bride-to-be
A reason to revel, we know you’ll agree
“The times of our life” is the theme for this day
To help the new couple get on their way
Breakfast at home, lunch in the park
Playtime and fun time from morning til dark
Filling each second, each minute, each hour
That is our challenge for this bridal shower
We hope you can join us, we hope you’ll agree
(Hostess’s address) is the place to be!
YOUR TIME OF DAY IS_______________
You can incorporate this theme in everything from the invitations to the food. Serve food buffet style from a variety of meal times around the clock. Incorporate clocks and timers into the decor, and give kitchen timers or calendars as favors.
This shower theme would also work really well for a baby shower, assign times like bed time and bath time.
