I fell in love with the bouquet, but also fell in love with the feeling of designing with intention and clarity.

Janine Carpenter
Founder & Designer

Welcome friend and thank you so much for stopping in. I wish we were sitting across the table from each other but let's start here and maybe we will be soon.

My name is Janine Carpenter, and I am the owner and designer at Petals and Stems. I was introduced to the flower industry in 2000/2001.  Alongside me is my right-hand man, best friend and business cheerleader, Kurt (aka my husband) and three kiddos that are our everything.  


Petals and Stems is a flower studio located 5 minutes north of Vermilion Ab, that caters to weddings and events in the area. We specialize in modern blooms, Pinterest worthy bouquets and making floral visions bloom.  We believe that florals are a great way to tell your story and express who you are as a person/couple.


Petals and Stems is not a flower shop that caters to daily floral needs. This gives us a unique opportunity to focus on you and your visions. We also have a passion for teaching what we know, so we have created seasonal workshops throughout the year for you to enjoy.


At Petals and Stems we are very aware that diving into the world of flowers for your upcoming event can feel daunting and overwhelming, that is why we are dedicated to making your experience as comfortable and relaxed as possible.  After 19 years in the industry, we understand dreams and visions but also budgets and real-life concerns. We go above and beyond to listen and direct you in an honest and professional way.


We are excited to help you on your journey to planning your wedding/event.

- Janine
