Last Christmas the lovely crystal trifle bowl id had for years was smashed by accident. I was so fond of it’s crystal sparkle on the table. I’m now searching for a new one but they seem to be a bit out of fashion. Where did you get yours?

Try charity shops. There are always lots in ours.

Following. I don't have space for one but I'd love one. Has to be crystal!

I have a couple. There are always lots of them in charity shops.

Yes. But we inherited it —and it’s really far too big unless we actually want trifle for 20– so most of the year it has a pot plant in it.
^^ try charity shops.

I have an etched glass one currently for sale at m&s. Would love a crystal one but in the absence of £££ for Waterford or similar, it'll have to do!

Either I'm really crap at searching or their websites are rubbish, but I've seen beautiful glass and crystal trifle bowls in Marks and Spencer and Debenhams recently. We have a Waterford Crystal one which was a wedding present, but noone likes trifle except me 😞

I’d love to get one from a charity shop so I’ll have a tour of them this weekend. EBay has some beauties but I think they’re teeny weeny.

The M&S ones are lovely, will show off layers. cake

That etched one is pretty!

My mum gave me 2 trifle Bowls a few years ago that had been in her cupboard for years. 1 crystal one and 1 glass one that I remember holding on my lap taking a trifle to school for a party, it seemed huuuuge at the time. It’s still pretty big eg 20+ people but nowhere as big as it was in my memory!!!

I do, a crystal one, it was my mother’s.

I got one from Sainsbury’s last year - it’s a simple glass one, not sparkly but does show layers well. Only about £6

I have my mother's 1940s crystal bowl

I ordered my MIL one from Waitrose online, think it was about £15 and it was lovely.

I’ve got one that weighs a bloody tonne! My DH and DD don’t like trifle, so it’s sat in the cupboard for 10years.

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Tue 14-Nov-17 17:39:20

Ive got one of these its bloody huge

(Actually i have two because some one gave me one)

I dont use them as they are huge and no one eats trifle here

I just put my trifle in a crystal bowl - looks lovely

DinosaurFarmer Tue 14-Nov-17 17:42:17

Next have a couple in at the moment if you look online.
