Vintage 1960's LaVada Lap Tray TV Tray - Gold Rose Design
Tray meals can be a delightful stimulant if they include a surprise element in the form a of a lovely pitcher, a small flower arrangement or some seasonal delicacy. The Joy of Cooking, 1964
Vintage midcentury LaVada trays were all the rage for tv dinners during the 1950's and 1960's. Pretty and functional, they accommodated eaters with enough room to hold a dinner plate,flatware and a beverage glass and were designed specifically for individual use while eatying in awkwatrd places like arm chairs, the couch and bed. With foldable legs, they could be elevated for ideal height and easy eating.
LaVada trays are fun to collect because they come in a variety of designs and are still completely useful in our modern era. They are especially great for balancing laptops or tablets while working from the couch or bed. They also make a great makeshift shelf on your kitchen counter if you need a little more storage space. This tray is especially pretty with its retro gold roses and simple design.
