My husband just informed me that in a few weeks, his boss has so graciously picked our house to hold their monthly “briefing.” Cool, I love entertaining, but we’re not exactly like the other people in the company. Meaning that they wear collared shirts, have business cards and clean, un-inked skin. Also, our two front rooms, where everyone would be for this little get together, are full of my husband’s zombie and macabre paintings, and pin-ups.
From the past meetings they’ve had that I’ve attended, the other houses are bright and fantastically cut from Better Homes and Gardens. They’re all great folks, but some are a little judgey, and I don’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable or weirded out. I’m wondering if I should take some of the paintings out, get lots of flowers to distract from the gory goodness, or just let it be?
This meeting means a lot to us, so we don’t want to screw it up with half-naked ladies and corpses. How do you make such an offbeat space into a crowd-friendly one? -Tiffany
Y’all had some great insights about handling tattoos in a place of business, and minimizing weirdness when hosting clients in a home office. So whatchu got when it comes to hosting business meetings in your anything-but-business-casual homes?
