Hamptons Holiday Entertaining: How To Create An Undone Sparkling Wine Tower For New Year’s Eve

Looking to be the hostess with the mostess this New Year's Eve? Seriously impress your guests by creating a memorable moment as champagne or sparkling wine trickles down your beautiful, carefully crafted glass tower. "Replace traditional coupes with eclectic short glassware for a dramatic and wildly unexpected setup," shared celebrity event planner Stefanie Cove. So pick your favorite bubbly (we recommend the 2009 Kim Crawford Fizz) and get pouring.

Directions:

1. Start with a solid table for your tower's base.
2. Build a sturdy base with festive tumbler-style glassware and top with a mix of crystal and metallic rimmed glasses. (Note: test them out in advance to make sure they will balance.)
3. Start off with 10 glasses, for example, in a square at the bottom.
4. The next level is nine glasses, then eight, and so on.
5. Make sure each glass touches its neighboring glasses. (Note: You will see a diamond shape made between the glasses if done correctly.)
6. Once the tower is assembled, slowly pour the sparkling wine from the top glass and it will trickle downward.
7. Invite everyone to take a glass and join in a group toast, but instead of leading the toast, you can start "toasting roulette" catching guests by surprise for an impromptu toasting session near the tower. Put everyone's name in a hat, and whoever is pulled has to give a toast. As a bonus, the sparkling wine will not be wasted or sit too long.
