June 1, 2012Etsy Finds: TV Trays
We’ve all done it, eating those frozen dinners of fried chicken or turkey or beef while sitting in front of the television set. Swanson even named theirs “TV Dinners.” The boxes looked like a television set, too!

So, every once in a while, Americas’ mothers and wives would pop these into the ovens so family members could eat supper in front of the set. Like these folks.

But since the aluminum trays were burning hot, we couldn’t sit them on our laps, much less carry them into the living room. Help!
Enter the TV tray. Problem solved.
So I took a look on Etsy to see what MCM TV trays were out there.
This argyle pattern tray with legs from oragracevintage can hold my fried chicken dinner in style!
Company’s coming, so I’ll use this set of 10 avocado-daisy trays from BarbeeVintage.
A little flower-power for my turkey and dressing from ZellesAttic.
A mod looking fruit arrangement design will suffice from LeraLu.
Hmm, the neighbors are bringing their kids along.
Would they like to use this Disney tray from estar2011?
Or the Popeye and Yogi/Huckleberry Hound trays from morembwstuff?
Grab a tray and gather around the Dumont!
