Miss Party just has to send out a big party love for this convertible Williams-Sonoma ‘Glass Domed Cake Plate/Punch Bowl’ that – snip-snap! – Miss Party converts to a Trifle or punch bowl! Williams-Sonoma seems to have the exclusive on it, but thankfully it is quite reasonably priced at around $30. It is such a huge seller, you’ll find it in regular Williams-Sonoma stores, their outlet stores and their online store. It is a large 6 1/2 quart bowl, which is perfect for a crowd.
So, as a domed cake plate, it’s perfect for keeping breakfast breads, cookies, a pie, or a not-too-tall cake from drying out and, of course, you can do all sorts of things with the cake plate which are quite unrelated to ‘cake’. Now you get to be the magician for a minute. Turn the cake plate itself over to become the base; turn over the domed lid and place the ball top inside the recess in the stand and you now have a Trifle or punch bowl!
Some of Miss Party’s other creative uses for this set: used the cake platter to display candy on a Candy Buffet; used the punch bowl to display M and M’s on another Candy Buffet, put big bunches of red and green grapes on a wine and cheese table, English Trifle for a crowd, and Mulled Cider for a crowd. At a Christmas Cocktail Party, Miss Party took a pre-made fresh 10″ cedar and balsam wreath and set it down over top of the neck of the base (overturned cake plate), it was gorgeous. You’ll love it’s party smart versatility!!!
