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.
Inspired Occasions takes care of all your needs by arranging for all:
- Kitchen items
- Outdoor event needs
All of our displays are carefully created on serving pieces chosen to enhance the ambiance of your event. 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.
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.
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.

You should be so proud of your staff from last night. My favorites were all there and some new faces, and everyone was exceptional.
They problem solved with me for a few situations that were not even their responsibility and are so gracious and hard working with a smile all the time! You have the best A team. Jeff and Michelle are fantastic and we couldn’t have done it without them. All of this said, the food was perfect and delicious and everyone was so complimentary. Beyond grateful,

The food was amazing and delicious with few leftovers; that’s how I like it. People ate well! The market cheddar pie and the crème brûlée French toast were to die for!!!
