berry (napkin) picking

Last summer I was so bummed that I missed prime berry picking season on Sauvie Island. Even though I spent a sizable chunk of my summer in Portland, I managed to miss most of the sunshine and the legendary berry fields that I kept hearing about at dinner parties. This year, I’m going to do my best to catch them in season, but until then, these printed berry napkins might be my best bet. Each set of hand-screened hemp and organic napkins was created by Tina Produce and is made entirely of recycled fabric. And each kit (packed in a sweet compostable berry container) comes with one blueberry, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry napkin. These would be a sweet way to invite someone to go berry picking with you, or to give as a housewarming gift. If you’re interested in picking up a set, click here to check them out in more detail ($22). xo, grace

    Cute napkins! Nothing beats Oregon’s berry season. Make sure you load up on marionberries if you make it to Sauvie Island this year – so good straight off the berry bush!

    I am obsessed about berries and live here in Portland. Their website says that they are currently out of stock on these napkins. Thankfully I may be able to just pick them up at the store once they have more…..and yes, I look forward to every summer where I load up on berries from Sauvie’s Island. It is a real treat!

      oh no! they were in stock when i wrote the post last night :( sorry

    if you miss sauvies, drop in to my place just off hawthorne. if you spent all day, every day picking raspberries in my yard you’d still barely make a dent. plus, then we can make yummy things in the kitchen like my blueberry syrup or raspberry margaritas or vinegar.

  5. These are darling! What a cute idea! I’m waiting for cherry season here, but have a ways to go…

  6. Danette says:

    Too, too cute. I love them so much.

    Berry picking on Sauvie Island is by far my favorite thing to do! I anxiously anticipate it all year long!!

  8. I love how they come in an egg carton. How cute!

  9. Tan says:

    I just adore how those napkins come in a berry container. How sweet!
    Berry picking is tons of fun. We did a fair bit of it in the summer and still have some yummy jam left over :) (the best part about berry picking!)

    Great berry picking on Sauvie Island, Grace. It’s a gem. I love it there!! (and I love these napkins in the cute box!)

    Hey Grace,
    I am sure that there were some then, but your post made them look so good that they probably went quickly!

  12. Absolutely beautiful, I’m inspired!
