Step 2: Wrap the 3/8" white grosgrain ribbon around the top of the stem one time.
Step 3: Cut a piece of the 3/8" black grosgrain ribbon approximately 2.5" long and tie a knot in the middle - this is the groom's bowtie.

Step 5: Cut a 2.5" piece of the 3/8" white grosgrain ribbon.

Step 9: Fold the piece of red ribbon at a 90-degree angle so that about a 1/2" of the ribbon is hanging down.
Step 10: Roll the rest of the ribbon.

Step 4: Cut a piece of white tulle that is approximately 4" long and tie it in a knot around the base of the champagne flute.
