Our house has these lovely hardwood floors,
1. I need to
include a request for soft-soled shoes or for guests to remove shoes at
the door in the invitations themselves. I have a basket of slippers at
the door for people to use if they choose, but standing on this floor in
bare feet can REALLY be tiring, so I want to give advance notice.
and 2. I need to make a sign for the entryway asking guests to remove their shoes.
I've been looking at ideas online, and so far my favorite contenders are:
* "Abandon shoes all ye who enter" (which appeals to my Latin major/literature dweebiness, but might be sort of obscure)
* "Welcome--Thank you for removing your shoes"
* "Please remove your shoes.......feel free to take a better pair on the way out"
want a sign that is welcoming yet gets people to remove their shoes. I
can do it with machine embroidery and I thought putting shoes actually
ON the sign would make it clear (though the first one would also
definitely need a dragon). Which would you go with?
