These are the adorable 2017 Holiday Bearistas. They boy is the 135th edition, and the girl is the 136th edition of the Bearistas. The girl bear is wearing a white and gold dress with a jacket of green and red that has a silver rabbit on it. The boy bear has a tweed jacket with green tie and green and white plaid shirt. He has grey pants. His jacket has what I guess is a rabbit on it, although it looks more like a random blob. LOL. Both bears have STARBUCKS 2017 patches on their feet. (I mistakenly thought these were the year of the rabbit bearistas, but I think they are just the holiday ones for 2017).
Wanted to share my Christmas bear tree and a few new (and old) Starbucks bears. The bear with the fur hat and the puppy with the green scarf are new for the 2011 holiday season at Starbucks. All of the other bears pictured here are from past seasons. Hopefully someday I’ll get around to posting them all properly. Until then, here they are! 🙂 Happy Holidays! Click images to enlarge. 🙂
Here I have the whole Gingerbread Bearista family! There is the boy Gingerbear (78th edition of the Bearista series) and the girl Gingerbear (79th edition of the Bearista series) and they are together with the small magnet boy and girl bearistas. The boys have red buttons and green ties with the gingerbread suit and the girls have orange ribbons with green buttons and the girl gingerbread suits. As you probably know, gingerbread is a traditional holiday treat and these bears are certainly a treat as well! I am fairly certain that the Gingerbread series only came out in Asia. I got my bears from eBay. I am not 100% certain about that though. At any rate, they are charming and beautiful! Click the photos to enlarge. 🙂
We have this thing on our fireplace that I got from Pottery Barn. So many people have this wall accessory that it is kind of embarrassing, but I still like it anyway. It is fun to change up the decorations for it during the different seasons. So, I decided my winter/holiday Bearista magnets would make perfect decorations for this! I put some red yarn in the bottom of the glasses with the bears. In the other glasses I put tissue Christmas paper, little balls of yarn and some gold ornament balls that we had. Then I made some little poofy yarn things to add to a few of the holders. I wanted to keep it kind of random. It looks pretty cute in person. It might be kind of hard to tell how cute it is from the photos. I am including one close up, so you can see the detail better. Click the photos to enlarge. 🙂
Well, I think this is probably the final update for the Bearista tree. I found some more bears to put on and I found some little red ornaments and I added ribbon and put them on the tree too! I’m pretty sure I won’t be adding anything more. I think the little red ornaments look pretty good though. I’m glad I went to the trouble of adding them. I’m not too sure they are very visible in the small photo though. Click the photo to enlarge. 🙂
Last year Starbucks really outdid themselves with this cute couple. Here are the plaid Santa boy and girl Bearistas. The boy is the 86th edition and the girl is the 87th edition of the Bearista series. The boy has plaid pants, a red santa coat, a big santa buckle belt and santa hat while the girl is dressed up in a satin red dress with a plaid santa coat and a red cap with a poinsetta flower attached. They both have the Bearista patch on their feet and their coats are almost military-esque with a hint of gold. The girl has eyelashes and rosy cheeks too! Click the photos to enlarge. 🙂
