Starbucks Happy

Being a frequent Starbucks drinker, I love this little gift for a hostess, house guest, teacher, or just as a "Happy." I used a Starbucks frapp container, added some shred, placed a Starbucks gift card inside and attached a ribbon with a "Happy Fall Y'all" sentiment. I have a special someone in mind who will be receiving this from me real soon:)
The ribbon really does say "Happy Fall Y'all!" Please excuse the photo {I've been blogging for three years and using this very inexpensive camera the whole time...Lord me.}

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that it's no secret I LOVE Starbucks! I've been known to make multiple trips to the drive-thru in one day! This sign inside Starbucks makes me happy!
Goodness gracious. The Pumpkin Spice Latte. Love 'em!

Couldn't resist posting this y'all!
What to nibble on with that latte? Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins...Lord have mercy!
Not an everyday habit, but oh what a delicious treat!!!


What's your favorite Starbucks beverage? Are you like my Mama...you just don't get it? "What's all the fuss about that place?...she's always asking me!

Well I'm off for a quick Starbucks run!!! Thank you for stopping by today!

I love your gift card packaging idea. I love coffee but Starbucks is a tad bit strong for me. A Pumpkin Latte sounds pretty good. I may have to try it, that may be a SB drink I could tolerate.

I don't go to Starbucks because I don't like coffee, but I'm going to have to stop in for one of those muffins. They look yummy! I do hit Starbucks during the holidays for a peppermint hot chocolate.

Miss Janice, I love that gift wrapping! Last year I hand embroidered monograms on brown chocolate linen and sewed the fabric into a coffee sleeve. I then went to Starbucks and asked for three empty coffee cups and three gift cards. I put the cards inside the cups and that made a great presentation for my coffee sleeves. :) They loved them! Great minds think alike!

What an adorable idea! I might have to borrow this one! I just love Starbucks, particularly the PSL. But! Have you tried the Salted Caramel Mocha? There's a lot of flavoring in there, and I've found the key is to swirl between sips to keep everything mixed up (is that a terrible etiquette no-no?) My goodness, that thing is GOOD!

What a precious gift idea! You know to me it's all in the packaging! I'll be sure to use this idea for my next Starbuck's gift card present! My daughter and I refer to Starbucks as "The Buck"...we make many trips there...especially in the fall/winter months. My favorite summer drink is Sweetened Passion Tea Lemonade and my favorite winter beverage...well, there are several...Hot Soy Chai, Eggnog Chai, Peppermint White Hot Chocolate and anything with pumpkin spice in it!!

Oh!I love it when the pumpkin spice coffees come out this time of year! I don't have a Starbucks near me ...
So I rarely go.
A few times a day ! haha!
Have a pretty day!

Cute idea Miss Janice! I crave Starbucks too and I don't even drink coffee - I love the hot carmel apple cider in the winter.

I love the pumpkin cream cheese muffins!

Natalie said...

What a fantastic idea! I am totally borrowing :) I could see buying or making a piece of biscotti to include in the cup!

I love Starbucks, but have been attempting to limit it a bit more now that my new office is across the street from one. My go-to is Skinny Vanilla Latte, but I adore Pumpkin Spice in autumn and my all-time fave is Eggnog at holiday time. ;)

Nothing is better than a pumpkin spiced latte in my Lilly stainless cup! Now that is simply Fall, mmmmmm! Cute idea as always!

Love,

What a sweet idea! I know I would love it if I received this gift. I actually do not drink coffee but my go to Starbucks order is a chai non fat latte!

I loved their Mocha Coconut frappacinos they had this summer! They've put out a salted caramel frappacino for fall - good, too.

I am addicted to SB and I admire the dedication they have to both their employees and the planet. There are very few "stand up" companies these days.
