We are Inspired Occasions — Unique Ideas, Unforgettable Events.

Inspired Occasions is much more than quality food and drink. Our creative spirit and soul pour into every event we touch. We savor each event’s unique ideas and breathe excitement into the entire event-planning process from beginning to end. Our approach is one of nurturing relationships through superior customer service and respecting budget lines—we want to get to know you and talk one on one so we can create an unforgettable event for you and your guests.

From corporate functions and lunches to private meals and larger dining, we’re only exclusive in that every dish, slice and serving we create for you is handcrafted from scratch specifically for your event. We specialize in innovative events encompassing food, service and creativity, and we will always take our involvement deep below the surface of your event so your guests walk away with an experience to remember.

Proudly Inspired
