Sandra Worthing said "Attended a party and it was absolutely fabulous. The children could not take their eyes off Mac for one second and even if they did, the wonderfully talented Louise painted their faces in the most beautiful designs. Definately recommended. "
Ailsa's 4th birthday party
Thank you very much for making Ailsa's 4th birthday party so special.
She loved every minute of it and all the other children thoroughly enjoyed the games, the balloons and the amazing face painting!
I wouldn't hesitate to book you again or recommend to friends
Full Monty, 7 year old
The party was perfect! I couldn't have been happier and the children were engaged the whole way through. It combined all the themes you could want: sporty, dance and traditional party with the added bonuses of a magic show, balloon-modelling and face-painting.
The children were really active most of the time and the timing of the magic show at the end helped everyone to wind down. There were laughs all the way through with Mac's commentary and beautiful face-painting for those that wanted. Louise is a really talented artist. To sum up: our Mighty Mac and Louise party was a total hit with everyone: boys, girls and adults and I whole-heartedly recommend them.
An absolutely fantastic beautifully orchestrated non-stop fun experience. So much fun in fact that all the parents decided to stay! 30 children 2 1/2 hours and not a single tear, argument or moment of ?down time?. I really can'?t praise Bryden and Louise enough. Even the older children loved it (up to 10 yrs) with the special effects make-up and personalised balloon gifts. I?m booking them every year (as are most of the other parents in Grace?s class!) so get in quick!!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for entertaining all the children today at Holly's party. Everyone really enjoyed themselves - including the parents who were very complimentary about you! We'll certainly be recommending you to all our friends.
Many thanks again
Evelyn and Andy Kay
Millie's birthday party
A big thank you to both of you for today, you really made Millie's birthday party special. Although there were different age groups, you both understand what was required to keep all the kids happy. All the kids were excited, loved the balloons, face painting, party games and the disco music. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family and will be booking you again next year.
Gracie's 5th Birthday
Kids absolutely loved Mighty Mac & Louise....Louise's face painting is AMAZING and didn't take more than a few minutes for each application. Mac has the kids in AWE of his balloons and manages to keep all kids focused on each party game. Thoroughly enjoyed the party as did the stress free parents! Thanks again for a memorable day guys...highly recommend and will definitely use in the future.
8th June - Kidsout, Rotary Club
Just to thank you for your expertise in making all those ingenious balloon creations at KidsOut on Wednesday 8 June 2011. They were obviously just what the children really appreciated!
So then very many thanks to you for everything and hopefully see you again next year!!!
9th April - Macmerry, Tylers 4th Birthday
Many many thanks for providing the entertainment for our son Tyler's 4th birthday party. Everyone had a fantastic time and all the parents who stayed said that your patience with the kids and ability to keep them all interested was amazing.
Tyler has become quite fond of his octopus balloon and keeps on wearing his medal telling everyone he sees that he won. Thanks again and we hope to see you for many more birthday partys in future.

Treasure Island Competition for World Book Day - 4th March 2011
We have now used Parties and Events for two Edinburgh Primary school competitions, organised by the Scottish Centre for the Book at Edinburgh Napier University.
The qualtity and creativity of the face painting Louise is able to produce in a short space of time has been the best I have ever seen. Mighty mac is wonderful with the kids entertaining and helpful, whilst making a balloon hat, wand, sword, animal or just about anything!
On both occasions they have arrived in plenty of time to set up and have a very professional approach. They also went the extra mile providing us with themed music and a PA system. I would recommend them, they will bring your event to life!

Christening Party - 18 April 2010
Apologies that I have taken so long to post this feedback, however I wanted to thank you both personally for making my daughter Grace's Christening not only memorable for us, but for everyone else who was there.
The children had a great time as did the adults. Mighty Mac was professional and kept all children from 0-13 entertained, and Louise's face-painting skills were out of this world....we had many tears that night when it had to be washed off. You are fantastic and we will use you again.
I think anyone will not be disappointed booking this professional team.
Well Done on the service you provide.
Clare and Colin Malcolm
Alexander's 4th Birthday - December 11th 2010
I just wanted to say thank you for such a great birthday for Alexander. He said it was the "best party ever" and I have to put all the credit your way. The face painting was absolutely brilliant and Mighty Mac's stamina is very impressive along with his entertaining and balloon modeling talents! It was a brilliant afternoon.
Sam's 5th Birthday - August 8th 2010
I just wanted to say thank you both very much for making Sam's party last Sunday such a success. The kids had a fantastic time, the games were fab, just perfect for the age group, and your face-painting was amazing!
It was such a weight off my mind not to have to worry about entertaining the kids and you both did such a fantastic job of keeping everyone occupied while at the same time being completely unobtrusive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends!
Thank you again (and you may see us again next year!),
Camaron's 6th Birthday - 20th March 2010
Many thanks for another great party for Cameron on Saturday.
He said to me after, it was the best party he had ever been to. Which was great, taking us, his family, by surprise as he is a shy wee boy and never talks to strangers. But you had him helping you and laughing, and we have some fab pictures of him.
You also did really well with the wee boy who would not sit down or do as he was told.
Even my parents enjoyed the show, as well as the children and myself. Bryden, its so great the way you take over the party and have children enjoying themselves.
Not forgetting Louise, the face painting was amazing . It really makes the party too and the kids love it .
You are a very talented couple and thank you again . See you in September at the next party.
Rebecca's 5th Birthday - March 2010
This is to say thanks very much for a good job well done at my daughter's party. Everyone is still talking about Mighty Mac for his funny acts and Louise for such a talent at face painting.
Some of my friends are already asking for your phone number for their children's birthday party too.
I am happy to recommend you to anyone who wants a fantastic party.
With lots of appreciations from,
Mary and Rebecca Chan.
Joint 8yr old and 9yr old Birthday Party - 28th February 2010
Bryden (Mighty Mac) and Louise were fantastic. They controlled the event from start to finish, I can't believe I'd so much time on my hands. Bryden captivated the kids attention from the start with a mixture of party games and magic tricks (and more) And Louise literally didn't have time to stop as a constant queue of kids snaked away from her table awaiting to have their face painted.
(can I add this is real face painting, Louise is an artist and this shows in her work.
So thanks again guys, big thumbs up. Murdo MacLean
Imogen's 4th Birthday - 14th February 2010

Thank you. Mr and Mrs Cunningham

Indiana's 3rd Birthday - 3rd January 2010
Thank you so much for helping to make Indi's birthday so magical and memorable!
We and all the parents were blown away by your stunning, and oh so beautiful face painting, Louise and I'm finding it hard to put into words how fantastic the creations you made with your balloon modelling were, Bryden. You are both artists! Great party games too.
Your warmth and fun meant the kids had a truly brilliant time. And it was such a pleasure to have you both in the house.
Your professionalism shines through and thank you so much for making it out here through all the snow and ice when quite a few of the kids had to cancel because of it.
All our warmest wishes to both of you and look forward to seeing you again next year!

Mighty Mac, you kept them all entertained so brilliantly, the parents all thought you were fab! and Louise, your face painting was absolutely gorgeous, no one wanted to wash it off, apparently some didn't! Your website doesn't do you justice!
All the kids just loved all the balloon shapes and swords to take home. You should have seen the looks i got with the giant balloon spider in the front seat on the way home!

Ivan's 5th Birthday Party - 4th October 09
Thank you for a fantastic party for Ivan on Sunday. He, and everyone else, had an absolutely brilliant time. All the parents commented on how good it was and how beautifully the face painting had been done. Ivan's dalmatian face was an absolute picture and he and his sister, who had sparkly flowers, wanted to keep their faces painted like that forever!
The balloon modelling, too, was excellent, especially Ivan's horse which he has been riding around the house on since. I wish you could see the photos of all the smiling faces, children's and adult's.
You are both to be congratulated on a most wonderful afternoon's entertainment. I am so pleased we chose to book your services and would not think twice about recommending you to others. Thank you so very very much!

40th Birthday Party August 2007
Dear Louise and Bryden,
I cannot begin to thank-you for making my 40th
Birthday Party special for all the children. It was
very important to me that my friends could bring their
children and that they weren't just left with a bag of
crisps, some chicken nuggets and a carton of Ribena as
they fended for themselves.
Being let down at the last minute by another entertainer,
it was looking like I would have no entertainment and
then I got hold of you! Fitting me in was brilliant,
your "show" was exceptional and I do not say that
I loved the boys coming out of the house
saying "they're just doing face painting!", in that
special disappointed tone, only my young nephew and
boys under 10 have.
"They do bullet holes for the boys AND scars" says I
as they turned tail and ran back in...BRILLIANT! The
speed and quality of your face painting was
Keeping 20 kids quiet and in awe as they
waited their turn was unbelievable.
Then there were the
balloons...fantastic! But best of all was seeing the
two shy 3 year old twins faces and their parents as
they came out smiles wide.
I will recommend you and use you again at the first
opportunity. I will finish on another thank-you
and with this.......
Something's just do what they say on the tin then
there's Louise and Bryden of Parties and Events they do
