Champagne has always been a favorite drink of many. It’s delicious and is a wonderful drink to add to any kind of party. If you have been to many parties in your life, some were expensive and some were less expensive, but none more memorable than the champagne wall party I had a couple of years back. You’ve heard the hype before… The beauty found when you hold a glass of champagne next to any surface in your home. I’m talking about coffee tables, kitchen counters, and even walls!

What is a Champagne wall?
A champagne wall is a display board that can hold glasses of champagne or other beverages for guests to grab at events especially weddings. The great thing about a champagne wall is that it lets you have a sophisticated style while still providing accessibility. This means that everyone and anyone is able to enjoy the party, not just the VIPs. However, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t feel like a VIP. We know there were nights when you have to keep things simple because there isn’t much time for planning. But whether you’re having an intimate dinner party for four or a large corporate banquet, how the atmosphere of the room is transformed can be positively impacted by the right décor.
The most rewarding way to enrich your home is to bring home a party. Installing a Champagne Wall is the newest and greatest way to call attention. So, choosing the right champagne wall rental instead of buying is ideal. On the other hand, if you host many parties, buying a champagne wall would be way too economical than renting it.
How to make your own champagne wall in 2023
For all those who do not want to spend so much money renting or buying a champagne wall, making it yourself is a great option too! It is incredibly convenient for those with time on their hands and craft skills. But don’t worry, even if you have no prior skills, you can totally make a champagne wall. Trust us, we made one without any craft skills!
Tools and Supplies needed:
Wooden boards (either painted or not), Wood primer, Paint, Champagne flukes, Boxwood squares
Electric saw, Electric drill, Hammer, Nails, Circular Saw, Sandpaper
- First of all, sketch how you want your champagne wall to appear. Measure the dimensions of the wall you wish to place it on and the shelves to put on this wall. Note them all down before you head to buy everything you need.
- It is best to buy some champagne flutes beforehand. These are readily available on amazon. They will enable you to know exactly how big the holes in your shelves should be, as well as the vertical and horizontal distances needed between flutes. Once you have your hands on these flutes, get yourself some plain wooden planks. You may want to buy ones that are already cut and painted.
- If not, mark the width you want your shelves to be, then draw straight lines across the wood. After that, you can cut away! It would be best if you sanded out the flat areas, edges, and corners before painting the wood. Make sure to apply primer to the wooden surface and sand it after drying. Next, you can hip out your rollers and paint away!
- Once your boards are dried and ready, it is time to start marking. Mark the hole you need to create for the flute and how far apart each flute needs to be. This will be highly dependent on the sizes of flutes used and your personal preference.
- The next part is probably the hardest. You have to make the holes! You can do this using a drill or any other suitable tools. Be very careful when operating these tools. The holes made may not be smooth, and you will need sandpaper to smooth them out
- Using a circular saw, create lines leading directly to the circle to create a path to slide the flute in and out. You may have to use a power saw to cut that rectangular chunk of wood completely.
- You will have to paint the inside of these holes to ensure a clean look. Keep some paintbrushes or spray paint at hand.
- Take your background board and spray paint it green. We think it will help cover up any spots showing from under the boxwood squares.
- Use a staple gun to secure the boxwood squares to the board. Make sure not to stretch out the squares, as this may make your board show up. Nobody wants that! Cover the whole surface with these.
- This next part is a two-person job. Ask someone to hold the background board upright with the horizontal shelve pressed against it just as it will be in the final form. Screw in some nails from the back where the horizontal board is placed to secure it in position. This may be tricky, but it’s worth it in the end.
- Keep adding more boards with the appropriate vertical distances between them until you have as many as you need.
- To form support for this wall, attach a board perpendicular to the bottom of the board to form an L shape. Secure this properly with nails. Next, you will have to keep some sandbags on the backboard to stabilize the wall.
- You can add balloons or floral arrangements at the top to decorate your wall further
And we are done! This ordeal may take you a few hours, but it will be very rewarding when done. Just make sure your wall is stable, and the screws are tightened enough to prevent anything from falling. We also recommend using long nails to ensure that they secure everything in place. After all, the wall has to carry the weight of flutes and champagne! Also, make sure to add some flutes at distances first and test out the integrity of your structure before loading it with the maximum weight.

Bring in some green
If you are having an indoor wedding, you may like somewhere to appear more connected to nature. This creates for beautiful pictures, giving an outdoorsy vibe. While you may not want an outdoor wedding due to the unreliability of the weather, you don’t have to give up on that green floral backdrop.

They can even ask the bartender to make an order and go have fun while he makes it. After it is done, it will simply rest on the champagne wall until your guest is ready to enjoy it.
