How to build a Champagne Tower

©Kara Rosenlund

I know, a bit random no? As you all know I am shooting the online shop and props hire this week; I asked my girlfriend Sally O (yes, if you want to hang with me your last name has to be O) to pop by and give me a hand building the champagne tower of coupes for the shoot. Sally O took this very seriously, I knew she would, she is good like that.

Here are some hot tips to build a Champagne Tower.

  • 1. Ensure all your coupes are identical; always use coupes, never flutes, ohmygosh, that could be a disaster right there.
  • 2. Start with a solid and firm base for your tower. Depending on the size required you could start off with 10 x 10 glasses or smaller like 6 x 6.
  • 3. As you build up to the next levels ensure each glass touches the surrounding glasses. When done right, you’ll see a diamond-shaped gap between each glass.
  • 4. When building the next layer, centre the stem of the glass over the diamond openings that were created by the layer below.
  • 5. Repeat this assembly process until there is a single coupe glass on top.
  • 6. Once assembled, begin to slowly and gingerly pour in the Champagne from the top glass and it will trickle down (we used three champagne bottles for our tower)
  • 7. If you are using the Champagne Tower for decorative purposes only, you could always fill as you assemble.

Ya Dah… Old Fashion Magic!

  1. Oh my, you sneaky thing!!! Look at my face and all that concentration. I should also say that it would have been easier if all the glasses were identical! And it was very, very dangerous – for a variety of reasons! xx
