How to DIY a Champagne Tower

Bubbles are the official unofficial New Year’s eve drink and a Champagne tower will always impress your guests! Even if you’re like my fiance and have enough coups for a wedding reception, you’re better of using high-quality acrylic or plastic coups. My favorite DIY champagne tower tutorial is from Food52. It’s very detailed and includes a video and written text. As for the perfect coups for the champagne tower, go with Pottery Barns!
