As Owner and President of Pedestals Floral Decorators, Phil has a vested interested in every event that takes place. He has always had a passion for floral and for seeing his visions become reality. Now known as a leader in the industry he still is on site daily to oversee all ordering and production. Throughout the years Pedestals has grown not only in its location size but also by employees. When founded in 1993, Phil and his sister Rose would purchase and produce every event in a 1200 square foot location, now in 2013 Phil owns a 10,000 square foot facility in Garden City Park.

Born and raised in Queens, New York, he believes in keeping the work here on Long Island. “This is my home, these are the people who made me who I am today and for that I am grateful.” He was taught how to run a business and how to dream big when he was a child, his father would tell him “Whatever you choose to do in life, do it all the way and never give up”. Today, Phil still works with the same ethic and teaches his team to work the same way; that what they do here at Pedestals is not just a job, but its a passion, its art. And that each person deserves the very best product.
