I kind of got the idea from marrying this concept
with thic concept
So I threw together a semi-prototype with leftover craft-junk around the house. Might I add, this is in NO WAY stable at the moment, I just kind of wanted a vision.
up closer the glasses look like this.
I only had my cell phone camera… takes hideous pics.
1) Am I at least on to an idea for a good design
2) The glasses are mounted fairly solidly in floral foam, but I can’t exactly figure out how to stabilize it so It won’t fall over. It need to be more bottom heavy, any suggestions?

I think you can make it work but I wouldn’t use foam for the layers. I would use something more solid like mirrors or sheets of acrylic.
If you want the thicker look like the layers foam, I would sandwich the foam between two thin layers of luann- a thin plywood veneer. My concern is that with the weight from above, the rim of the glasses coujld be pressed into the foam, putting the whole thing off kilter.
I would support each layer with 4 glasses.
Here’s another pic using crystal plates and wine glasses.
Here’s a cake stand where they used hydrangeas inside martini glasses as a base.
I think the key is the plates have to be firm and solid.

Thinking on those suggestions:
Totally not to scale, but…
Blue = wood (plywood particularly for the bottom) perhaps something thinner towards the top.
yellow = foam. I think so long as it was pressed down very firmly, it shouldn’t shift. I might could press it down all the way to the wood layer.
