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.
