I need to get some seltzer water so I can try this out.

So over a couple days (very off and on) -played a little more...

Did some more reading after these attempts and continued pursuit ...

Wondering how Karin is doing...
liked the idea of grapes...but they tend to float...they also rise up in the glass and go down for some reason...

Well as a retired physics prof this makes sense to me, but I'd like to try it out. In this pandemic, we just do not get out much, so how to get some seltzer water is the issue.
The physics is that apparently the density of grapes is close to that of water, but if they are slightly less then the grapes will tend to float. But if they are slightly more dense than water they will sink until the attaching bubbles become enough to make the density of the grape and bubbles to be less than that of water. They then float up until enough bubbles pop at the surface for the density to large enough for the grape to sink again, etc., etc. --Richard

I imagine that working with smaller tops to the glass makes it more difficult to arrange subjects.

Got to admit it can be a bit tedious ! The grapes really got me doing their thing!

Cherries worked much better- and I love them!
