I've lost my MyPanera card. How can I get a new one? Published 06/05/2014 01:37 PM ' Updated 10/02/2017 10:57 AM
With MyPanera, there actually is no need to carry a plastic card. You can simply visit the bakery-cafe and provide your phone number verbally, or type it into the key pad in front of the registers. This will credit your account for your visit and allow you to redeem rewards exactly as swiping your card did.
If you prefer to carry a plastic card, please let the associate know during your next visit that you need a replacement. You'll need to provide the associate with the lost card's number -- you can find this by clicking here and signing in. Once your lost card account is located, the associate will swipe a new card and transfer all of your account details, including your transaction history and any available rewards, to your new card.

Cut Fresh Flowers to Last Longer

I love having fresh cut flowers in the house, they add so much color and life. What I have noticed is that I usually have to replace them because once they've been cut they never seem to last longer than a few days. I spent a bit of time expreimenting with different techniques for preserving fresh cut flowers so that they will last longer than just a few days. These are the best techniques that I was able to come up with.

The Proper way to cut flowers

Most people, myself included, think that cutting stems with regular scissors is okay. This is not the case, when you cut flower stems with scissors that aren't meant for cutting stems you can crush the stems and will block the flow of water to the flowers. Simply usng pruning sheers will work wonders for your flowers. Be sure to cut your stems underwater because you want to prevent air from going up the stem and blocking the flow of water to the flowers.

Mixing different things into the water that you place the bouquet in can help to preserve your flowers. I have to note that you should pick one of these methods and not mix all the suggestions together.

Putting a few drops of liquid bleach and a teaspoon of grandulated white sugar in a quart of water will work wonders. Mixing equal parts of lemon-lime soda and water is very good for your fresh cut flowers. If you don't have the soda on hand you can always use a teaspoon of white sugar, two tablespoons of white vinegar and a quart of water to preserve your flowers.
I like to use the lemon-lime method the most especially when you are going to be putting the flowers into a glass vase and will be on display immediatly. There is something beautiful about the bubbles in the water.

How about using old maps! It sounds bit off beat but people usually have old maps that are out of date or just not needed any more around the house. They make very funky wrapping paper and add to the adventure of unwrapping the gift.

Hello Janet,

I am assuming you are asking this from the perspective of a party planner (If at all different, let me know and I'll be glad to re-formulate all the below mumbo-jumbo for you!). There is definitely no specific convention when it comes to gift giving time and people usually make a chaos out of it, but here are a few suggestions that might help keep it under control:

* Define a time for gift giving during the activity. Make sure the guests know about it in advance (It can be creatively inserted in the invitations). Not necessarily a scheduled time since things rarely stick to schedules, but rather an overall thing like "After cake, some time around 3". Less stress for you this way.

* Have a gift table, gift tags and pens available at the main entrance. Mark them visibly so they are hard to miss. That way, if Aunt Jill came with a gift that does not have her name, she can take a tag, write a nice wish, and place the gift in the table.

* If at all possible, have a person at the gift table playing the role of host, greeting the invitees, and drawing them to the gift table. This helps keep escapee gift-givers to a minimum, and Uncle Bob will have less of a chance of upstaging everyone with his usually impressive gifts that he always gives first so everyone else's look lame.

* If there is a party program of any sort, make sure gift opening takes a nice spot. Make it interesting for the gift givers by holding a poll on whose gifts get opened first and last, with some nice prize for it. People usually like bets and contests, and you want them to have a motive to stick to your plans.

On which site do you want to add a card to your account?

Event Planning &... | Answered on Nov 12, 2018

It depends on what site you are using. Most sites have a button for gift cards, but if it a Visa Gift Card, then you'd fill the information in as a credit/debit card.

check off the silver box and those numbers will be the ones to use when redeeming gift card

Go online to the UK site of the store and purchase the value you want in Pounds. Your card provider will do the rest

Ask the store, but even they may not be sure or it may contravene privacy laws
