Dee and Keric Rowlee opened their floral design business in the early 1980s following their move from Michigan to California in 1978. Dee volunteered at the California Polytechnic State University (“Cal Poly”) flower shop on weekends for many years and was anxious to begin working on her own design projects. The business began as Flower DEEzigns until the late 1980s when the business name was changed to Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons. The business originated in Morro Bay, California, and moved to Los Osos, California, in 1985. The floral design business expanded to include balloon décor during the 1980s when it became popular to add helium balloons to each floral arrangement.  Keric Rowlee was instrumental in expanding the business to include the construction of large balloon decor.

Dee Rowlee currently operates the business with the assistance of her daughter, Mandi, and daughter’s husband, Trevor Rice.  Dee graduated cum laude from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, in March 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural and Environmental Plant Sciences concentrating in Greenhouse and Nursery Plant Production.  She is currently working part-time at the Cal Poly greenhouses, assisting them with cut flower production, where she is responsible for many cut flowers including chrysanthemums, alstroemeria, trick dianthus, lilies, hydroponic roses, hydrangeas, and many other cut flower varieties.  Dee is studying for the California Pest Control Advisor examination which would allow her to make recommendations on the application of pesticides to these crops.

Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons is constantly working to improve services to our customers.  Currently, we are working on a monthly subscription service which would allow our customers to subscribe to a regular delivery of custom floral and/or balloon decor.  Since Dee’s concentration of study at Cal Poly was roses, we will be offering rose consultant services to anyone interested in improving their rose gardens.  We also anticipate offering exceptional rose plants to our customers, both nursery and cut flower varieties.  With all these goals, Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons anticipates a bright and productive future.

Over the past 35 years, Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons has designed event floral and balloon décor for numerous occasions, ranging from small and intimate affairs to events designed to impress the masses. Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons takes pride in providing unparalleled customer service and support to accentuate your most personal moments and intensify your most public celebrations.  Celebrate, look great, with Rowlee’s Buds & Balloons!
