Lon Lane's Inspired Occasions

Services & Venues

Inspired Occasions offers a wide variety of services and expertise to satisfy even the simplest need. We can also suggest a number of exciting venues where we’ve held successful events before. 

Menu Creation

Our staff custom-creates each menu specific to your individual occasion. We take into account the time of the event, all other foods being served, seasonality and atmosphere of the event. From casual cocktail fare to a gourmet, seated dinner, we can design the perfect combination of flavors for you.

Event Design and Production

Inspired Occasions will plan the layout and general flow of your event. From placement of bars and tables to a minute-by-minute timeline of what will happen, we take care of all the details to ensure a flawless event.

Full Rental

Inspired Occasions takes care of all your needs by arranging for all tables, chairs, linens, glassware, flatware and kitchen items.

Buffet Design

All of our displays are carefully created on serving pieces chosen specifically for the room where they will be set up. We have thousands of serving pieces ranging from silver and copper trays to Nambe, black and white porcelain and glass contemporary pieces. We can accommodate everything from a formal, traditional dinner to a cutting-edge contemporary display.

Menu Consultation

If your event is at a venue that doesn’t allow outside caterers, our expert staff can meet with onsite planners to develop a menu that is best suited for the venue.


Our event staff includes a seasoned staff of banquet captains, professional chefs and servers, bartenders and event personnel. Whether you require a bartender to serve drinks at a party or you’re planning a gala for 1,000 people, Inspired Occasions can accommodate any and all of your needs.


With a wide selection of décor pieces, as well as arrangements with local and national vendors, we can ensure you have the specialty item needed to make your event memorable.


 Our expertise ranges from spotlighting individual tables to tent lighting to setting the atmosphere with ambient glows. Whatever you desire, we can arrange a lighting solution.


Background or showcase, solo or national act, we can make it happen.

Take-home Gifts

Inspired Occasions can create or arrange for the perfect take away so each of your guests has something to remember the event. From chocolates to special logo cookies, we’ll make them as individual as you are.
