Big Easy Baskets
Give your wedding guests Nola-themed welcome baskets
Whether you’re a local couple or traveling to the Big Easy for a destination wedding, it’s more than likely you’ll have a few out of town guests. It can be tough on travelers and what’s better than showing up to your hotel room with a beautiful gift waiting for you?
It’s not required, but it’s always nice to let your guests know you’re thinking of them and are grateful they came to celebrate your Big Day.
You can put anything you’d like into a welcome basket, but why not tailor it to the city? Lucky for you, New Orleans is full of talented, creative people and businesses creating products that are a perfect reflection of the city.
Some of our favorite basket ideas include:
Cafe Du Monde or Community Coffee
Nola children's book
20 things you have to do while you're here
50 best photography spots in Nola
Tchoup Industries koozie
Our perfect basket would include a bag of Zapps chips, a praline or two, bag of CDM coffee, a Tchoup Industries koozie, French Quarter shot glasses, a New Orleans Magazine and Louisiana Life Magazine and a Fleurty Girl greeting card.
