Free Printable: Around the Clock Shower Invite

By Amanda Jane Jones

Whoever invented the “Around the Clock Bridal Shower” deserves a high five. Such a good idea! Each guest receives an invitation with either Breakfast—8am, Lunch—noon, Dinner—5pm and “Dessert”—10pm. They then purchase a gift according to their assigned time/meal. It makes sure all your bases are covered…a bit of practical and a bit of fun!

Instructions: 1) Download the free printable below and print out each invite. If you so choose, you can print the stripes on the back. Who doesn’t love some extra stripes?!? 2) Cut out and fold in half. Easy!

    I love it and it is so cute… I might be crazy but I just wonder why the clock says “8” instead of “9”?

    Keiko, I agree, I think that must be a typo!

    I’ve never been to an “around the clock” shower, although I have been to an “around the house” shower where we are assigned a room.

    * should be “Thanks for sharing!”

    Assigning to rooms is a nice twist too!

    oh, how embarrassing. I’ll make a new pdf with the 9 instead of an 8. Don’t know what I was thinking. :)

    I’ve used this idea before, but your invitations make it so much better! Thanks for sharing.

    I’m afraid that I don’t get it. Can someone explain more? What’s the difference between a noon themed present and a 5 pm themed present?

    This is such an awesome idea! It would have been great to get a little less dinner time things and a lot more through out the day things!

    Love around the clock showers – and these invites make the idea even cuter!

    I had an “around the clock” baby shower where each guest was assigned things like bath time, bed time, meal time, etc. It really helped make sure I received a variety of items (rather than 101 receiving blankets!) and it was fun to see the creative things people came up with for their “time”. What a great idea to apply to a bridal shower as well!

    Is it just me, or does anyone else notice a very important time/event missing? Cocktail hour! But then again, dinner and cocktails go hand and hand. Very cute!

    My husband and I were once invited to an Alphabet Shower. The letter U was our challenge — we bought the couple nice golf umbrellas and presented them along with our own version of “I Got U babe.” It was fun.

    Most of my friends and I got married long before cool free printables like this were around! But I’m excited to share this with the younger generation. Thank you for being so generous with your creativity!

    I am planning a baby shower for a good friend and would LOVE to do an around the clock theme for her. Anyone know where I could find something to use for that? I love these, but know that this is a PDF upon downloading .
