Birthday party food (vegetarian)

Hi all - planning my baby's first birthday party menu. We're hosting around 25 people plus a few kids in our apartment, starting at 3pm. So we're thinking light finger foods, obviously. We're vegetarian (not vegan) so the food will be as well. Here's what we've got so far:

Vegetarian "meat"balls in sauce (my dad's recipe, very easy, will sit in a crock pot)
Samosas (purchased from the place down the street)
Cut up veggies
2-3 dips (maybe a homemade white bean garlic dip, some kind of layered tex-mex type dip, and maybe hummus)
tortilla chips or pita chips or something like that (purchased)
Maybe a big bowl of goldfish crackers or something for the kiddos

(and we'll have cupcakes or something obviously)

Other suggestions? We want to avoid making too much at home, but stuff that can be made in advance would be great. And it needs to be ok served at room temperature since we don't have any chafing dishes or anything.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
