Today marks the beginning of the Christmas season for me. A season filled with traditions and moments you just want to live in. For me, one of those is decorating the many Christmas trees around my house while sipping on Starbucks® Holiday Blend K-Cup® pods—sold at Safeway.
This is the day I start decorating for Christmas every year. I know this because today is my birthday! Birthdays aren’t as big of a deal as they used to be, but one of the fun things I do every year is get the Christmas bins out and start decking the halls. I consider it a little birthday present to myself! We are so close to Thanksgiving, and I just want to enjoy those twinkle lights for as long as I can. I know most of you can relate, too!
The Season Is Brewing
I always let the kids help with the initial decorating of the Christmas tree, but eventually it becomes MY turn and I embrace every second of it. After they head off to bed or maybe even school, I pour myself a cup of coffee and get lost in the moment of the holidays.
It may be because I’m a Seattleite or maybe it’s because their coffee is just THAT good, but I am a total Starbucks girl through and through. I love it when the Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee comes out; it’s like pumpkin spice lattes in the fall. It just sets the mood for the season. It’s available in both Starbucks® Holiday Blend Ground Coffee and Starbucks® Holiday Blend K-Cup® pods.
Savoring The Moments of Christmas
As I bring down each Christmas bin one by one, I take out my Christmas decor and set it out. Looking through all the ornaments, the colors, the patterns, the textures. The sentimental ornaments and the decorative ones. I start to think about what color theme I want for the year and how I want our home to look and feel.
I love all the memories we make as a family throughout the holidays, but the introvert in me loves these quiet moments where I get to take in the spirit of the season with each sip of coffee, each ornament hung, and each delicious treat.
This Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee has the most delicious flavors that capture this time of year, from a little spice to subtle hints of maple. The second I brew a cup, the house fills with an incredible aroma of Christmas.
During the holidays, this is my playground. My creative outlet, the place where I get to use my passion to decorate our house for Christmas. Last year was all about the traditional red and greens, and I think this year will be a little more bold with black, white, and a few pops of red. But we shall see, I’m still playing :)

So, download the app, check out the latest offers, add some Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee to your cart, and set your delivery time. Save your time for the things that matter most this season.
What Is Your Holiday Moment?
When you think of the holidays and holding that hot cup of coffee, what are you doing? Decorating your tree? Baking cookies in the kitchen? Sitting down and writing holiday cards?
