We're thoroughly enjoying our summer nights in L.A., when the weather dips down low enough to venture outside and hang with friends under a strand of twinkling lights. This was the scene for us this past Friday over cold drinks and a grouping of patio chairs pushed together. And while the setting was intimate, our hostess provided ample spots to set our drinks...A lovely vintage TV tray acted as the group's table and makeshift bar. The tray was the perfect size and allowed us to sit in a cozy circle. Plus, it folds up quick and easy to stow away indoors or tuck alongside the house. A TV tray could also work nicely indoors as an impromptu side table when guests visit.
