Champagne towers never really went out of fashion

Champagne towers are not an everyday thing by any means.  Lots of us have not yet seen a real one, and many more might get lucky and see one once or twice at a wedding or party.Photo by Lanzillo Design

Sometimes the cheats win out and pre-fill the glasses rather than building the tower, opening the bottles and going for the big cascade, and who can blame them.  The real deal takes practice, a steady hand and nerve and needs an audience!

Crucially, cheating or not, the event will need the right champagne coupes – not too big, certainly not too small, just the right size rim and steady on their stem.  Looks like they got it just right.
