How to Dress Up Champagne for Holidays

how to decorate a champagne flute

If you read my post on Russian winter holiday traditions, you know that New Year’s Eve is the biggest holiday of the year in Eastern Europe. People are getting together and party all day and night long. Somehow it’s considered cool to stay up as long as you possibly can and then brag about it for the entire month of January. New Year’s celebration in Russia is never possible without champagne as it’s a traditional drink to toast with at midnight.

After years of living in the United States, I notices that the champagne tradition seems to be international. However, Americans are trying to be creative with how they serve champagne. Today, I’m so excited to collaborate with Luc Belaire to share with you some of my favorite ways to make your New Year’s celebration even more memorable by “dressing up” your exquisite champagne bottles and flutes.

Champagne decorated with string lights

Idea #1: Make It Glow

When it comes to the champagne bottle itself, I love an easy and cute idea of wrapping the bottle in elegant holiday lights. I found those adorable lights on Amazon and (please keep in mind the lights require extra batteries) I’ve been using them to elevate all sorts of bottles. However, I especially love how this gold bottle of Luc Belaire Luxe Champagne looks with it. Isn’t it adorable?

Idea #2: Make It Sweet

Perhaps, my most favorite way to decorate a champagne flute is by adding rock candy to it. This trick is so effortless (you can find those cute sticks at most supermarkets), but it really elevates the drink. Sugar will slowly dissolve in your glass that will add additional flavor to your drink. You will also notice that it helps to get rid of the bubbles faster (I know that some people don’t like them). Personally, I think that the best part about this “recipe” is that you can drink champagne first and then enjoy a sugar stick as dessert—it gets even more yummy with the champagne flavor on it.

Idea #3: Make It Preppy

An easy way to make your typical champagne flutes look cute is to put on a paper bow on it. I purchased those at Target gift wrapping section (check out also Papyrus and Paper Source for similar kits). You can also create your own bows and attach them to the glass with the help of double-sided tape. I also suggest picking matching straws so this set looks finished. It’s such an easy trick to do, but the result is so adorable!

Idea #4: Make It Glittery

This champagne flute decoration idea literally takes a few minutes to accomplish and the variations of this DIY project are endless. Basically, all you have to do is to pick your favorite glitter tape (mine happened to be in gold so it matches the bottle design of Luc Belaire Luxe Champagne) and wrap it around the flute. Be creative and experiment by adding a few different tapes across the surface of the glass. Another idea is to handwrite the name of a person the glass belongs too so there is no confusion on whose drinks it is.

Idea #5: Make It Personal

You know how it goes: you put your glass on a table for a second and then you can’t figure out which of those dozen of glasses is yours. For these situations, try making each champagne glass personal—by adding a tag with person’s name. I decided to make mine with a miniature glitter card and a gold clothes pin—it’s so easy and so cute!

  • Just bumped onto your article. It’s funny you call it ‘how to dress up champagne’ as I actually made a video about this same Luc Belaire Luxe wine, and called it ‘undressing Luce Belaire Rare Luxe’
    Fun coincidence. See post and video from here
    Cheers. And thanks for sharing this nice and beautiful post 🙂
