When Party City Gets Gushy

The city that knows how to party also knows how to woo! Pick up flowers for your date at Harkins the Florist, offering gift baskets and gorgeous bouquets since 1979. Flora Savage proves that both flowers and plants can make for great arrangements. Mitch’s Flower Shop is open at 9am and is a great place to find flowers, gifts and more.

Complete the evening with a little extra dessert. Of course, Café Du Monde is a must for beignets, but New Orleans has even more to offer. Bittersweet Confections is a sweet escape, the Creole Creamery is a master of classic malts, and Angelo Brocato is your local Italian dessert expert.
