Starbucks new Carry the Merry Holiday Cups debut today
Sometimes a Peppermint Mocha is more than just a beverage. Itâ€™s a moment of joy; a familiar ritual that connects holidays past and present. Starting today (November 6th), Starbucks Canada customers can enjoy the comforts of the season with a flurry of returning seasonal favourites, alongside its new holiday cups.
Starbucks Carry the Merry Holiday Cups
This yearâ€™s theme, Carry the Merry, is an invitation to enjoy the little moments of brightness around you.
â€œWhen we started designing the cups over a year ago, we didnâ€™t know anything about what 2020 would bring. Our mindset was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,â€ said Jeff Wilkson, Creative Director for Starbucks. â€œIn a way that message deepened as we got further and further into the year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to.â€
This design brings forward all the joyful elements of the holiday season in ribbons of brand greens and a jolly red like a cozy holiday sweater. Look closely and youâ€™ll see the Sirenâ€™s crown, tail, and scales.
Stripes swirl around a field of Starbucks house green punctuated by playful polka dots.
This red cup has vintage vibes, with cutout shapes in green like glittering holiday ornaments. The motif is repeated in a snowy white on Starbucks cold beverage cups.
This modern, scaled-up version of the ribbon design features bold bands of holiday colour and the Starbucks wordmark, designer street style.
