Welcome to Decorati: Where Creativity and Fun Collide!

Hello, I’m Carla, the proud founder of Decorati. Let me take you on a journey of how it all began.

A Quest for Quality Activities: When my children were younger, I faced a common dilemma shared by many parents – the struggle to find fun, creative, and high-quality activities in our area. I vividly remember flipping through the pages of “Sydney’s Child” magazine, scouring the “What’s On” section in search of activities for my kids. Disappointed by the lack of options in our local area, I often found myself driving across Sydney to access activities that would provide my children with enriching experiences beyond the ordinary.

Turning Passion into Purpose: As an Early Childhood Educator with a desire for career growth, I pondered over the idea of bringing these sought-after activities to my own community. After heartfelt discussions with my husband, Emmanuel, I realised there was no reason why I couldn’t be the one to offer these experiences locally. And so, in 2014, Decorati was born – a vision to host mobile activities, events, and workshops right in our own backyard.

From Local Beginnings to Citywide Success: What started as a humble venture in my local area quickly gained traction as families recognized the value of Decorati’s offerings. Before long, I found myself taking the Decorati magic to locations all over Sydney. It’s been an incredible journey, filled with challenges, triumphs, and above all, the joy of inspiring and assisting other young families in their quest for quality activities.

Passion Meets Purpose: Food and Child Care studies have always been my strongest passions, and through Decorati, I’ve had the privilege of weaving them into a niche business dedicated to children’s extracurricular enrichment. It’s a dream come true to combine all my passions and loves into a brand that brings joy and learning to countless children across Sydney.

Join the Decorati Family: Through hard work, perseverance, and the support of an amazing team, I’ve built Decorati into a top-notch brand that parents and teachers alike can trust. So, whether you’re a parent seeking exciting activities for your child or an educator looking to enrich your curriculum, I invite you to join the party at Decorati!

Together, let’s create unforgettable memories and inspire a love for learning in the hearts of children everywhere.
