Starbucks launches five new cup designs for the holidays

Designs were meant to evoke feelings of joy

Can you sense the cheer in the air? Maybe it’s the scent of peppermint mochas from Starbucks, with the launch of their new holiday cups.

Four new designs for disposable cups launched in stores Thursday, along with a reusable red cup design.

“We came up with this idea of wrapping the stores in holiday joy and wrapping the cups like a gift to our partners and customers,” Jen Quotson, vice president of Starbucks Creative. “We wanted coming to Starbucks to be like uncovering a present.”

The cups included green polka dots on a red background, a “merry coffee” cup, a striped green cup with holiday wishes, and candy cane stripes with Starbucks lettering. There is also a reusable red cup with “merry coffee” lettering.
