Need help with baby shower foods

I'm in charge of some of the more substantial dishes for an evening appetizers and mocktails baby shower. So far we have mock mimosas and arnold palmers to drink. We'll have some sort of cake. We've got cheese and crackers plate and some fresh fruit.

I've been asked to make the pillsbury crescent roll veggie "pizza", which is basically that ersatz dough cooked, and then topped with an herbed cream cheese mixture and cut up fresh veggies. Not anything I'd choose to make, but it's been requested, so whatever.

The real problem is what to make for a more substantial app. My restrictions are it has to be precooked the night before and then reheated in an oven the next evening for the shower. I was kicking around making some chicken wings, either apricot glazed or seasame/soy glazed. How do you think these would stand up to being reheated? Also, has anyone made that veggie pizza and how did that stand up to being eaten the next day? Thanks!
