Smells Like Flowers is a full service creative floral studio. We create + grow in Peterborough, On and maintain a small (private) studio in Toronto, ON. We service Toronto and Peterborough and everywhere in between. As a young business, we are open to all creative collaborations; however, we specialize in corporate design, creative direction and set design, as well as wedding and event design. At the core of all of our designs is an urge to express the feelings that owner, Bethany Rose Puttkemery, experiences when she is immersed in nature; an unbridled sense of curiosity, a sense of belonging, a surge of creative energy, and above all else, a sense of play.
Smells Like Flowers can be identified by their use of colour, their contemporary yet playful design style and by their oversized sculptural + installation work. As a queer womxn Puttkemery prioritizes collaborations, clients, and team members that support and uplift her community.

Bethany Rose Puttkemery (she/her)
Creative Director + CEO
Puttkemery has been a florist for the past 7+ years. Before launching SLF Puttkemery was the "Lead Designer" at Wild North Flowers (Toronto) for 3 years. Her time at Wild North equipped her with key experience managing corporate clients, honing her creativity, and ample time to establish a strong sense of personal design style.
Puttkemery received a BFA from OCAD University in 2007 in Criticism and Curatorial Practice, providing her with a trained understanding of contemporary art practices. Her art background can be sited in her keen sense of colour, her refined sense of balance, and her ability to execute large creative installations.
Smells Like Flowers is a dream realized. SLF was born out of the urge to be self-sufficient, to be creatively unhinged, and to forge a path that honours a deep love for nature. A personal move to Peterborough has allowed Puttkemery to begin growing flowers and to explore new creative opportunities.
