when I lived in NYC, the point of removing shoes (for those who enforced this rule, ie, not me) was all the icky germs you walk through all day, not just the obvious dirt/mud. Especially if you have a crawler/toddler who puts everything in his/her mouth and you'd rather it not be tainted with trace amounts of dog urine and someone's post-trivia night vomit, I'd totally respect the request. It would mean you (a) are super clean, (b) have a little one and (c) are planning a holiday party. two of the three of those would be a lot to expect of me. that said, if you are doing all of that, we are probably not going to be friends because you make me feel bad about my own life. also, while I'd respect the request, I'd hope for a heads up/slippers and I'd also wonder, why not have the party elsewhere?

I have a table runner in that same fabric as the pillow! I love it. It looks cute with a little fall/pumpkin centerpiece.

love the triangle garland/bunting, totally want to copy it, but the strangulation risk sort of makes me nervous
