Finger food, so you don't have to deal with forks. Fruit and cheese on skewers. Hummus and pita chips. Individually iced petit fours. Small rolls with ham. Individual quiches made in mini-muffin tins or mini-tart shells. Cookies, or tiny sweet rolls. Sausages or meatballs, speared with toothpicks.

Cucumber sandwiches, pressed paninis with truffle cheeses and prosciutto or goat cheese and red pepper hummus. Waldorf salad and fruit, individual flat breads...

We did one over the summer with a similar size list - we had pate and crackers, pasta salad (they had to eat off little party plates - they survived :-) hummus and pita chips, a mediterranean dip/salad of tomato onion feta parsley lemon and kalamata olives, also good with the pita chips, and a LOT, I mean a LOT of mini cupcakes, which we got from a bakery. Because there were a LOT - 100 - of them. And tea and bountiful mimosas which really will get you forgiven for just about anything else.

Love the above ideas.

Also, how about shrimp cocktail? Or if you want to be fancy-dancy, you could make little savory gougeres and fill them with all sorts of things like chicken salad, shrimp salad, salmon mousse (my fav). You could also pipe the salmon mousse onto pretty veggies like cucumber rounds and endive leaves.

Chicken salad with diced pears, chives, chopped walnuts and cranberries plumped in a little orange juice, olive oil mayo, lemon pepper to season with butter lettuce in mini pita pockets--a tall pyramid of the sandwiches looks nice.

Lettuce wraps and spring roll wraps--there are hundreds of recipes out there, and I've never had a bad one.

Ham, cheese and fresh fruit kebabs.
