Don't overdo it and don't overstress yourself.
No flowers, it will come off as creepy/weird not sweet and charming
Don't go overboard with cologne, if you are nervous you may be apt to do this, so remember that to little is way better than to much, or if you don't use cologne, that's fine too, now is not the time to experiment
Make a list of things you two can talk about, pets, siblings, parents, hobbies, places you have been, stay away from telling second hand stories, by that I mean every story should involve you in some way, even if your friend has a funny story about something that happened to him once, don't tell it. Your goal is to make her attracted to you. There is nothing wrong with talking about other people, but out of all the people you two talk about Friday night, you should sound like the most interesting one. bring the list you wrote with you if you feel you need to, but only review it in the bathroom.
Think of a couple good stories that do involve you, even if they aren't super funny, they are helpful in establishing the fact that you do stuff and aren't incredibly boring. Don't tell them all at once, only bring them up if they fit well into the conversation. Don't force it or you will seem egotistical. If you don't get to all of them, that's fine there will be a next time.
Have a backup plan, you never know what may happen, it may be too busy where you are planning on going, or maybe there will be someone there who she doesn't want to see (an ex perhaps) any number of things can happen, and "I have an idea." sounds a hell of lot manlier than "so, what do you want to do"
Try not to talk to her to much in the meantime, don't avoid her, and be sure to return any calls and texts, but don't go out of your way to contact her.
Pick out what you will wear on Thursday night then get plenty of sleep. Friday, a few hours before your date, work out, even if you don't normally, but take it easy, don't pull a muscle or anything crazy like that. This will help you in a couple of ways, it will pump your body full of endorphins which will make you feel good and help you relax, furthermore your muscles are slightly bigger for a couple hours after you work out.
Show up on time, and act relaxed and confident even if you aren't. People may tell you to be yourself. That is a load of horsesh*t, being yourself means being a nervous wreck, be the super version of yourself.
Have fun on the date, this is the most important thing, if you aren't having fun, she won't have fun, if she isn't having fun, there won't be a second date.
Don't worry about a kiss at the end of the night. It may happen, it may not, but don't think about it during the date, keep your head in the game! When it comes time to call it a night, play it by ear, a slightly awkward "good night" without a kiss is way better than going for a kiss when she didn't want one. But if you feel the opportunity is there, then go for it.
Stay confident. You will do fine.
