A bridal shower is a fun time for the bride to celebrate her new adventure into marriage. Close friends and family all join around the bride to be for a special celebration, typically over gifts and food. There are many different bridal shower themes that are popular, one of which is the “Around the Clock” bridal shower. The bridal shower gifts and theme are all centered on a certain time of day. Each guest is asked to bring a gift that reflects a certain time during the day. For example: say cousin Jill gets 6:00 AM, she may choose to bring something related to coffee as anyone who gets up that early definitely needs it! The bridal shower theme revolves around numbers and daily tasks. Gifts can be things for the house, kitchen supplies or gifts for the new married couple. There are plenty of fun bridal shower games that you can play to include numbers or household items, such as bridal shower bingo. Associate each space with something that pertains to a certain time, the questions will be “This drink is found on the table with a plate of waffles or cereal”. Instead of covering numbers each square has an answer to a question, in this case “orange juice”!
For “five o’clock” give the bride and groom a personalized jar glass set to serve drinks for cocktail hour! They can choose to enjoy a cool glass of lemonade on a hot summer day or serve guest drinks at a small cocktail party. These bridal shower gifts are really fun for any new couple. Be sure to include a time of day for each guest on the invitation along with a popular example in case they need inspiration.
