For a romantic table decoration, roses are the first choice. Whether white, pink, red or colored – rose table decorations are perfect for weddings, weddings or Valentine’s Day.
We have lots of inspiration for you and two step-by-step instructions in which we explain how you can imitate the romantic table decorations with roses yourself – in a few minutes and even without any decoration experience.
1. Ideas for table decorations with roses for the wedding
2. DIY: table decorations with peonies
In keeping with Whitsun, we would like to show you today how you can make this beautiful table decoration with peonies yourself.
In the detailed step-by-step instructions you can see exactly how to combine the romantic peonies into a beautiful flower arrangement so that the table decoration looks fresh for several days. This wedding decoration is completed with a hydrangea and small roses.
You can use the table decoration with the peonies as a wedding decoration, but of course also as a “normal” table decoration for early summer in your home.
Step 1: Materials required for the DIY table decoration
You will need the following materials:
- Flowers: Large peonies, other small roses, possibly matching color hydrangea (depending on the size of the vessel)
- Flower box in shabby look (or alternatively another vessel, you will find a large selection at Amazon)
- Secateurs and Knife
- Green plug-in compound (available in the hardware store or at Amazon)
Step 2: cut the plug-in compound
Now you can cut the plugging material with a knife so that it fits exactly into the bowl that you want to use for your wedding decorations with peonies.
Step 3: Soak the paste and place in the container
The cut-to-size paste must now be soaked with water so that the peonies will later stay fresh longer
The best thing to do is to use a small bucket and place the sticky compound on top of the water. Now you leave the plugging compound in it until it automatically goes under (do not press under water).
Then it is best to leave the paste to be soaked overnight. This is the only way to guarantee that the inner part is really soaked with water, because a short dip in the water is not enough and the self-made table decorations would otherwise no longer look nice after a short time.
Then then put the wet cinder block into the container.
Caution: If the vessel is permeable to water, then you have to cover it with foil beforehand so that the water does not seep through.
Step 4: Cut the peonies and remove the leaves
Now carefully remove the leaves and cut the peonies’ stems diagonally so that they can absorb more water and stay fresh longer.
Tip: With a flower cutter (available from approx. € 5 at Amazon) you can cut all flowers diagonally at lightning speed – ideal for floristry beginners who do not want to cut their fingers.
Step 5: Put the peonies in the plug-in compound
Now press the cut peonies into the plug mass with light pressure.
It is best to arrange the large peonies in such a way that they cover the transition from the flower box to the plug-in material at the edge. Now your DIY table decorations are slowly taking shape.
Step 6: Finally, integrate more roses
You can now fill the last holes with more small roses and / or hotensias (again, don’t forget to cut the flowers diagonally beforehand).
If you use darker roses in addition to the peonies, then the entire table decoration looks more lively. The hydrangea used in our example with the different colors also makes your wedding decoration with the peonies look even more interesting.
A very enchanting arrangement of brightly colored cut flowers!
The DIY table decoration with peonies is ready
If you want to use this table decoration for your wedding, then the time stops how long you need for a arrangement so that you don’t have to start too early, but also don’t get into a rush.

3. Romantic table decorations with roses
Here are the most important utensils for the romantic table decoration. We wrote to you directly about where you can order the materials.
- All Purpose Adhesive – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. 3 €)
- Small decorative tray – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. 6 €)
- Small clay pots – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. 3 €)
- Red ball candles – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. € 4)
(Please make sure that the diameter of the clay pots and the candles are the same or that the candles are slightly smaller)
- Some red roses from the Florists
- Red satin ribbon – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. 2 €)
- Bright Scatter parts made of wood like hearts – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. 3 €)
- More solid wire or kebab skewers
(For inserting the spreading parts)
- Wet plug mass – e.g. at Amazon (from approx. € 0.82)
Step 1: cut the plug-in compound
For the romantic table decoration, first cut small cubes out of the paste that fit into the clay pots. Before the plugging compound is put in there, you first put it in water. The roses can later pull this water out of the planting compound.
Attention: DOES NOT push the plugging compound under water. Just put it on the surface of the water so that it can soak up itself. Waiting time: only a few minutes.
As soon as the plugging material has soaked up, you can put it in the clay pots. Not only does it hold the rose there, it also supplies it with water so that your rose decorations stay fresh for several days!
Step 2: decorate roses
Now take 2/3 of the existing clay pots aside and cut as many roses as possible – about 10 cm below the flower. Then plug them into the plug-in masses. If the flower is not very full and does not cover the plugging material sufficiently, a second rose can also be inserted. How exactly you arrange your romantic table decorations is a matter of taste.
Step 3: spice up the tray
So that the tray matches the colors of the roses and candles, you can decorate it with a red satin ribbon. Glue in a few suitable scattering parts – done. The rest of the scattering parts can also be glued to a piece of solid wire or a kebab skewer and inserted into the plug-in compound.
Step 4: place candles
The ball candles are now put into the remaining clay pots and placed on the tray with the rose pots. It’s that quick and easy to make your romantic table decorations with roses. If you want, you can spread a few rose petals around it.
Your guests will be enchanted!
