Our History

Special Occasions is a family owned and operated local business serving the Darling Downs and surrounding areas since 1997 after owner Jan noticed a gap in the market. Starting out with a small showroom in with another company they expanded to the current location and warehouse in 2006, 2006 was also the year that Jan and her husband noticed another gap in the wedding market and bought and renovated what is now known as Toowoomba’s Warwick Street Chapel at 7 Warwick Street, Harristown.

2007 saw the business expand into Cake decorating supplies and by 2011 the fancy dress department opened making it a one stop party and wedding location for Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. In the years the company has been operating many trends have come and gone, some good some not so good but each time the dedicated staff have worked together to create something magical.
