Phil’s has more than flowers and décor

11 years ago


    Phil’s Florist and Greenhouses is a county staple for floral arrangements, unique gifts and antiques in addition to their prize-winning plants skillfully grown on site.
    Under the careful eyes of owners David and Patty Corriveau and the green thumb of greenhouse manager Meagan Irving, customers flock to Phil’s to purchase their annuals, perennials, houseplants, shrubs and trees that the business grows so well. Customers  keep coming back for exceptional floral arrangements and unique decorative pieces, as well.

    Phil’s Florist and Greenhouses staff offers full service floral design crafted by a staff of two full-time and six-part time employees, each of which has been certified by the Maine State Florist and Growers Association as both professional florists and wedding consultants. Keeping themselves and their employees up-to-date with training and creative methods is at the forefront of the Corriveau’s agenda in order to better serve their customers.
    “Continued education is important because it helps our staff bring our customers the very best products and services, as well as helping our professional florists stay on top of today’s trends,” Patty said, and her masters degree in floral design helps her add unique depth and creativity to each bouquet or centerpiece she carefully designs for each special occasion.
    “Every thing we do we pay close attention to detail and it’s all about listening to your customer, because it’s ultimately all about them,” Patty said. “Our business is customer service.”
    With the Pinterest craze inspiring brides, bouquet and beautifully repurposed art pieces, Phil’s staff can help customers make their decorative dreams a reality.
    “When a creative spark is ignited, we all get behind it,” Patty said.
    In the off chance something can’t be said with flowers, Phil’s Florist and Greenhouses offers a wide variety of contemporary, primitive and country gifts and décor; they’re a distributor for Yankee Candles, and have plenty of Demdacos to choose from, all situated in a fashionable showroom filled with antiques, shabby chic furniture and creatively painted potato barrels, signs and plenty of pieces with that tasteful “wow” factor that lights up a room or garden.
    “We enjoy what we do immensely — whether we are designing flower arrangements, planting in the greenhouse, painting windows, potato barrels or signs, repurposing furniture, polishing antiques or decorating venues in the store with our latest products,” Patty said. “We invite everyone to come and see what we have to offer — we have something new every day.”
