As we say goodbye to 2012, switch off our laptops and iPhones and close down our kitchen to take a long awaited (and needed) break on the beach, we would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to over 100 clients (many of whom are repeat clients and loyal followers) we have themed, styled, managed and catered for in the past 12 months. Without your continued loyal support The Inspired Occasion would not have had such a successful and busy year.
2012 has been a very exciting year for us, what started off as a home based, part time venture has grown into a fully-fledged thriving business. This is in part due to a change in management, funding, direction, premises and branding all of which have led to exciting new opportunities and clients that have embraced the services we offer with open arms.
During the year we have had the opportunity to work with some amazing companies and venues, it’s been great working with these guys and we look forward to continuing our association throughout 2013.

One of our best “Feel Good” moments for 2012 was our ability to give something back to the community that has supported us, and many other families across Victoria throughout the year - Ronald McDonald House Parkville. The Inspired Occasion along with Little Big Company and over 40 other very giving contributors banded together to create a fun filled day for 100 children and their Parents on 20 October. Information on this event, a list of contributors and images can be found here.
Other websites, Facebook Pages, blogs and media have also played an important part in our success this year, in particular we would like to thank the following for featuring and supporting our work.
On a more personal note we would like to send a very warm and special thank you to the people behind the scenes “The Inspired Occasion family”. These people help make it all happen, they give us their time, advice, assistance and support.

2012 has seen us surround ourselves with a fantastic group of trusted people, companies and clients.
Finally huge hugs and kisses to our husbands Kevin and Troy, our partners in crime who have encouraged us to fulfil our dreams and take The Inspired Occasion to the next level. Often the forgotten members of the team who you will always find helping, construct, administer and support us.
So what’s in store for 2013?
We will continue to grow the business model and brand and in early 2013 we will have a very exciting announcement to make, it’s killing us having to keep it a secret but until things are finalised and signed off the secret will have to remain within The Inspired Occasion Family.
