Things are buzzing in the Big Easy. As summer begins and more things are open to vaccinated New Orleanians, we’re all beginning to breathe a little sigh of relief. The end is, hopefully, almost near for the coronavirus pandemic.


Though many are happy about this move in the right direction, we can imagine very few are as excited as couples whose wedding plans were postponed, put on hold, or cancelled due to the pandemic.

With perfect timing to start the summer off right, New Orleans Tidbits and PJ’s Coffee have partnered in an Instagram giveaway for engaged couples. A current seasonal flavor of PJ’s Coffee is its sweet Southern Wedding Cake coffee. A lucky couple has the chance to win 250 bags of PJ’s Southern Wedding Cake coffee that includes custom stamps of the couple’s names and wedding date on the bag. Not only is the coffee delicious – and locally made – but a personalized bag of coffee is a practical wedding favor gift that no one will toss aside.

You can enter the contest on the New Orleans Tidbits Instagram page here.

And those interested can still shop PJs coffee products to fulfill their wedding favor needs here.


There is nothing like summer in New Orleans. Mainly because few places reach the temperature levels of the Big Easy. New Orleanians have become masters of their craft when finding ways to cool off during our Hot Girl Summers.

The ladies behind Tipsy Pops have found a way to keep cool this summer while also staying true to our boozy lifestyle.

Tipsy Pops is a local, female-owned company that creates booze-infused popsicles made with organic seasonal ingredients. The popsicles offered don’t include any artificial flavoring, which means you won’t have that thick, sticky inconvenience when hanging out by the pool. The current spring menu includes four options with four different choices of alcohol. April Showers contains elderflower liqueur, Day Dream has lemon-infused gin, Rosé Thyme has rosé (obviously), and Spring Junction is infused with vodka. The company recently debuted a new menu item the Aperol Spritz that includes sparkling wine, organic orange syrup, grapefruit syrup and soda water.

Not only can these boozy popsicles work for a bachelorette party, but also the elegant look will fit right in with an outdoor engagement party or couple’s shower. (Kelly here: I would even order a bunch for a summer bridal shower.)
