    I have a whole bunch of large cushions from ikea. I think they cost me about $8 each including covers for them.

    They are awesome and DD and I regularly have "picnics" inside if the weather is bad.

    Kmart and camping stores sell the large square rubber tiles that can be snapped together. You could put them down and then large cushions and throw rugs over the top?

    Oh and you are having a concert at YOUR HOUSE?! Totally awesome

    Hi op,
    Unless you are charging people I'd tell people it byo cushion. Accommodating 60 people will just get really exy and what will you do with it all afterwards?

    Ishty, when we lived in a freeeeeeeeezing house with a very young DD1, we had the rubber tiles on the floor in the play corner and it made a huge difference to our comfort when on the floor. Especially when coupled with large floor cushions and rugs. Definitely look into it

    And have fun!!
