About Us | Our Team – Party At Yours

Party At Yours Team

Come meet the Team....

Thanks for taking the time to come visit us and find out a little more about who we are. We're a small company with a huge heart and love putting smiles on your children's faces.

Party At Yours was created back in late 2008, stemming from a love of all things musical. We began as a karaoke and sound hire company - introducing people to the fun world of karaoke. It was one afternoon that I became inspired after spending some fun time with my 2 nieces, Olivia and Emily that the spark ignited, our focus shifted to Children's entertainment and our pop star karaoke and disco parties were created.

From there we have bloomed, now offering more 'super fun' parties for your kids of all ages, along with our amazing party hosts that help bring your party to life. We love to see the excitement on the kids faces and their infectious smiles. What could be more rewarding!

We are more about helping provide the 'fun stuff' than making a quick buck and believe in being honest and providing the very best service we possibly can.

We are continually inspired by the children we meet and look forward to bringing you and your kids more of the fun stuff to help their imagination grow. Stay tuned and watch this space!

I truly believe that your staff are your biggest asset and I am so fortunate to have the most amazing gals and guys working with me - with so much talent, humility and zest for life. They really make your child's experience with us a memorable one and that's what we're all about.

Melanie Kleinhans

The every bubbly and exuberant Melanie plays her part so wonderfully well as our Fairy Moonlight, Princess Pinkaliscious and Elsa. With her warm, natural and caring way, her ability to interact with children is like second nature. It’s a very natural setting for her and the thrill she gets from being around the kids is evident in the feedback we receive. Originating from Germany and Namibia, she has a fabulous sense of humour, love of life and enjoys the quirky side of the kids she meets. She is currently studying to become a Chiropractor so has that professional background to boot. Boy are we lucky to have her.

You’ll find the awesome Kyle bouncing around your party as Spiderman, Batman or Obi-Wan Kenobi. Kyle’s outgoing personality and super friendly, kind nature lends himself perfectly for hosting these style of parties. He not only interacts well with the kids but also really gets a real thrill out of working with them. He oozes empathy and creates real connections with the kids he entertains.
