Etiquette - Pine floors and stiletto heels
We have a very old home with beautiful (but soft) wide board pine floors. I had a friend visit the other day who was wearing stiletto heels and the result was dimples in the floor everywhere she walked. In a few weeks we will be hosting a large holiday party and I am having nightmares about what my floor will look like after it if more people wear similar shoes.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to encourage my friend and others invited to not wear stilettos without offending them? I do not want to ask people to take shoes off when they get here. Should I put something on the invitation or just suck it up and get over it?
