The florist prepares for the high season


WINTER HARBOR – With wedding season approaching, husband and wife team Pam and Arnold Di Ruggiero, owners of Schoodic in bloomprepare to create and deliver arrangements for an assortment of special occasions.

The year-round business has been located at 303 Main Street since last July. Before that, it shared space with the couple’s other business, the Winter Harbor Inn, across the street.

Arnold is the delivery driver and administrator of the flower shop, and Pam is the designer and bespoke florist, which she has been doing since completing a course at the University of Maine in 2018.

“I’ve always loved flowers,” Pam said. “It’s a happy place for everyone.”

In addition to floral arrangements, customers can find gifts, such as candles and lobster pots.

Shipments of flowers arrive once or twice a week from farmers and growers around the world, Arnold said, and travel directly from the plane to the store by special courier.

Those looking to order flowers can go to or call 1-844-SCHOODIC.

The store delivers to Downeast and Schoodic areas including Ellsworth, Sullivan, Sorrento, Franklin, Steuben, Milbridge and Cherryfield.

Rebecca is Schoodic’s area reporter and covers the towns of Eastbrook, Franklin, Hancock, Lamoine, Sorrento, Sullivan, Waltham, Winter Harbor and Trenton. She lives in Ellsworth with her husband and baby boy who was happily welcomed in June 2020. Feel free to send tips and story ideas to [email protected]
