There is something about the word combination champagne fountain that makes me incredibly excited. Endless flowing champagne is a fantasy I've entertained ever since I learned my mom had one at her wedding. However the champagne flute fountain isn't exactly what I had in mind. I love this idea though: you'll never confuse your glass with someone else's glass and these can double as a pretty cool decoration when filled with something creative like colored rhinestones or m&ms. What I hate about them is the gigantic price tag that registers over a $1000! In an ideal world I could afford them, but until then I'll add these flutes to my champagne fountain fantasies.
