ABOUT the 



Welcome to Katalayi—Connoisseur of Chic Events [expert judge in matters of taste].

I'm Barbara, Katalayi's Lead Event Designer and expert at designing extraordinary and stunning events! To those who know me, I'm miss sophisticated who loves doing everything in Style (to home decor, gourmet meals and fancy table settings (everyday!), travelling, and last but not least, dressing up (myself, hubby, and kids!).  Above all, I'm a devoted Christian thankful for a blessed life and to the gift God gave me to beautify interiors in a way that have blessed many brides with beautiful lifetime memories. 

One of the first questions I get asked when clients reach out to me (perhaps the question you also have) is... How much does it cost? The answer is simple: With our services there's no one size fits all budget, there isn't one decor for all, the price is based on the level of intensity of your decor. With my team, we can create simple, minimalist, chic designs to high-end, custom, ultra-chic designs. Whichever level of our decor intensity you choose (classic, fancy, or grand), your event design will turn out absolutely fabulous with our Katalayi signature touch. So, get in touch now and let's get started! My creative juices are always bubbling!!!

tailor-made event fashion and every design we create is crafted to make an inspiring, eye-catching statement.


We offer three service lines, two of them come with signature looks on which we base the creation of our designs:


  • Our Custom Design Service offers Contempo Chic—modern, contemporary looks, and Afro Chic—modern, batik looks.

  • Our Rental Design Service offers Ready To Wear—pre-conceived event decor looks, ready to style your event space. 

  • Our Event Planning Service is professionally catered to brides looking for full, half-day or day-of-    event planning service. ​


While designing weddings is our niche, our services also extend to corporate and social functions, charities, community events, and various life event celebrations.  ​

Both our services and designs embrace excellence, sophistication, innovation, and exclusivity.  
Because we so LOVE our job, we're not satisfied until every detail is PERFECT and we guarantee
