I'd like to hosting meetups, events, and parties in my apartment with no furniture. Can this work?
, I asked for some tips adjusting to a new city. Amarillo, Texas specifically.
The thread suggests I take the initiative. I found that I need to organize events for them to happen. While there is a lot to do by dining out and such, those things get expensive.
I'd like to have people over for some events. The only problem is, I don't know where to put them. I have no chairs, no sofas, and no tables. There is carpet though. And 1 bar stool.
For example, I'd like to host something like a cookie night (baking fresh cookies, milk, having conversation) or a dinner.
Would it be reasonable to have the guests sit on the floor? If so, what are cheap ways to make it comfortable and help people forget there are no places to sit? I'm thinking pillows but I need pictures or ideas.
Alternatively, would it be better to hold off and buy furniture to do this? I would be able to have the typical couch, dining table, etc in about 2-3 months.
I just don't know what the proper etiquette is for this. I'm from an Indian background and sitting on the floor is not a big deal and sometimes preferred. These would not be close friends though. Just casual acquaintances or people I meet through a meetup group.
What would you do if you had no furniture and had a desire to host social events? Pictures and detailed examples are appreciated.
