Feeding a Crowd? Trays for Eating on Your Lap
Growing up, we had these lightweight woven trays that we used at family gatherings when there wasn’t enough room for everyone at the table (a big stack of them sat on top of the refrigerator). With Thanksgiving approaching, we went looking for them. Turns out, they’re hard to find! But we found something similar, plus a few more good options.
Some of these are more expensive than others; ideally, if you’re handing them out to a big group, you want something inexpensive. But a couple of fancy ones might do if you live in an apartment and use trays during small dinner parties.
What do you use when you have people on every couch, chair, ottoman, and stool? Paper plates? Nothing—just let them juggle their dinnerware?
