Mike Watters of the Mclean House and Leah Desatoff, the sign art designer, celebrate the completion of the sign project.

We’re excited about our new outdoor interpretive historical sign, and we would like your feedback!

The Friends of McLean Park and House received a grant from the Clackamas County Tourism and Cultural Affairs and the City of West Linn’s Community Partnership Program to fund a project called “Know Thy Park.” The grant allowed us to create an historically interpretive outdoor sign that will add understanding and depth to the public’s experience of our beloved McLean House and Park. The sign was designed by McLean House volunteer Leah Desatoff, and the historical content comes from the Friends.

For decades, the McLean House and Park has been a valuable piece of West Linn’s history. Visitors and community members have discovered the wonder of the city-owned McLean House and Park. Many come to see the rose garden once tended by Anne McLean and now by neighboring volunteers. Visitors can see flowers in bloom, a variety of trees and plants, and sense the awe of the outstanding giant sequoia and bay trees.

What do you think? Please let us know!

Dynamic Colors

Bright hues are a must do for the summer weddings. Bright pinks, teals and oranges are in this year. But be careful; don’t try to many colors in one space. It is best to balance them out.

When planning your big day, think of sophisticated brights. Sticking with just two hues (or two plus an accent color) will keep your space balanced. Stay away from splashing color all over your reception space. To be elegant use one dynamic color for a strong statement, such as an all-pink centerpieces or bold orange table linens. Add you favorite color combos.

Easy Going Music

It’s summer which means easy listening is a must. The ambience is key to a wedding and tuning into more laid back tunes is a major trend right now? You can hire a pianist or a string trio for a more formal cocktail hour, but to really embrace the summer season, think about laid back music styles. For the reception, you can heat up the evening with steamy sultry.
