About Us


Rainbow Balloons and Petals & Baskets has been serving Lake County since 1983. We are a full-service floral and balloon shop committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements, the longest lasting balloon bouquets and beautiful décor for all of your special events. We back this up with friendly and prompt service. Our focus is to always exceed your expectations.

I began this company as a small local balloon bouquet and delivery service. However, over the years, my customers asked if I could provide flowers for their weddings. As the owner, I learned the floral basics at the local JC in Santa Rosa, got my business degree at Chico State and have honed my skills as an owner/designer in my retail store. Today, most of the work I do is floral related. However, as a Certified Balloon Artist, I still love playing and creating with balloons, and still find myself doing lots of Classic Balloon Décor.

I provide floral and balloon décor for any size event, from a small intimate gathering to large elaborate weddings. I work anywhere in the Bay Area, including Lake, Napa, Sonoma & Mendocino County. If you live in a county other than Lake County I can meet with you in a locale closer to your home. If you are a bride having a destination wedding, I am very comfortable doing everything via internet and phone. Many of the brides I work with don’t meet me until the week of their wedding. However, if you are close by, I invite you to make an appointment to look at my portfolio and discuss your ideas and visions and how I can help create décor that is perfect for you. We work with all kinds of budgets and take pride in being able to create beautiful flowers within your budget without sacrificing quality. I hand-pick all of the flowers early in the morning at the San Francisco Flower Market.

The Gift Basket part of the business is also an outcome of the original balloon business. We offer a variety of themed baskets to give as gifts such as Bath & Body, Coffee and Tea and Chocolate Decadence. We are always willing to design a basket perfect for your gift giving needs. Whether you need one basket or a hundred baskets we can deliver. We just request some lead time to source the product necessary to create the perfect gift.

Whatever the occasion, let Rainbow Balloons and Petals & Baskets be your first choice for all your floral, decorating and gift-giving needs. I look forward to serving you.
