@FutureFleming:  We considered doing an around the clock shower for my friend, but she’s pretty settled already and didn’t need to register for a lot of things, so the whole “bring a gift that matches your time” thing wasn’t really working. 

Some ideas we had were to do a brunch/dinner sort of theme with the food and set it up in a circle… so having food from “around the clock” going “around the clock” shaped table. We thought about sticking with the “time” theme by having a lot of pictures of the bride at different ages and making a game of guessing what year it was. You could do a music play list of either all time-themed songs or songs from significant years in her life. Or do a game of having people list all the songs they can with the word “time” in it. 

I hosted a shower this weekend and we had every guest bring a photo with them & the bride together. We set up a little scrapbook station with papers, embellishments & adheasive and people made their little pages. We used an 8×8 book, so it wasn’t as intimidating as a full 12×12 for the less-crafty people. It came out really really cute even though people said they didn’t know how to scrapbook. The key was to just have a lot of things that coordinated and I had all the BMs do their pages during set up so people had some examples to play off. 

Overall, the best advice I have is to keep it short. We had a 3 hour timeframe. It was enough time to eat, open presents, scrapbook, play one game and then get out! Showers that drag on for hours are a bummer.
