I would take some meat. Marinate then grill. Cut into bite-size chunks and pass around with toothpicks.
Parmesan cheese crisps
Rumakis. Sorry for the multiple posts, I just keep thinking of things. :)
mini crab cakes, seared sesame Ahi Tuna, chicken wings so manyto choose from
A board sauce is very cool, easy and the presentation is great. I buy a few cheeper cuts of steak, go med-rare, slice thin and serve on a large wood cutting board with toothpicks. http://www.epicurious.com...
Here is a better site that shows a board sauce. http://www.amazingribs...

Crostini with Tuna Tapenade (small slices of baguette have modest carbs)
This recipe for an Asian-flavored Kale with Sesame Sauce would be very pretty served in small cups as shown in the recipe photo or short glasses. The soy and brown sugar add carbs but the amounts are so small per 1/2 bunch kale, maybe it is still acceptable for your purposes.
lettuce wraps and rice paper wraps filled with julienned meat and veggis. meat skewers coated with sauce and crushed nuts. thinly sliced dry cured Spanish chorizo rounds piped with goat cheese.alternating slices of apple and xsharp cheddar.smoked trout on cuke slices.
2-3 spears of blanched or roasted asparagus wrapped in a little prosciutto

Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Herbed Cream Cheese or Goat Cheese. Another tasty sucker is Buffalo Chicken dip (Shredded real chicken, of course) served with crudités.

Smoked salmon or trout, served on cucumber slices (barely any carbs), with a dab of creme fraiche and sprinkling of chives or dill. A raw bar - oysters, cherrystones, some steamed shrimp - with a light mignonette sauce and/or homemade cocktail sauce, and lemon wedges.
Any variation of beet and nut puree, used as a dip or spread (could serve with cucumber spears, or thin crisps or crackers: http://www.spainontheroadagain...
My go-to party appetizer is often a good, well-rounded cheese plate. Meat on skewers (think beef satay) is also really nice. I love amysarah's ideas, too. Oysters? Count me in!

this is pretty extensive list of choices, i would also add to it ceviche and salmon or tuna tartare, bean crostini
On toothpicks, skewer 1 cherry tomato, 1 slice of prosciutto (rolled up) & one piece of bocconcini cheese. These always go down like a treat!
