And because no holiday beverage is complete unless it’s served in an appropriately themed vessel, Starbucks has also unveiled a new line of four patterned festive cups, all of which use a red and green color palette. “We started (this season) by looking to the past,” said Kristy Cameron from the Starbucks Creative Studio.

To do that, the team of cup designers snipped pieces from Starbucks holidays past – a star, a branch of coffee cherries, a flame – and added doses of vintage colors and patterns to give the cups a new look. While Starbucks has come under fire in the past for debuting cups that didn’t embrace the holidays enough, that doesn’t seem to be the case in 2018.

As one fan wrote of the cups on twitter, “[They’re] super cute this year.” Another deemed the festive drinking vessels “beautiful.”

What’s more? Since Starbucks is committed to promoting sustainability, the chain also announced it is giving U.S. customers who order a holiday beverage on November 2 the opportunity to celebrate all season long with a free, limited-edition iconic red reusable cup, in participating stores while supplies last. When customers then bring in their reusable cups to a participating Starbucks store in the U.S. or Canada after 2 p.m., they will get 50 cents off their grande holiday beverage through Jan. 7, 2019.
