Feeling lazy and uninspired -- need idea/theme for simple cocktail party

vvv03 | Dec 2, 2008 07:12 AM

We're having around 12 of my husband's co-workers over on Sunday afternoon for a casual cocktail party. I used to be so good at planning this type of thing, but somewhere along the way I lost my mojo. I'm worried that if I don't give it a little thought, it will end up a mish mash of things -- trader joe's finger food here, cheese plate there, focaccia over here, hard sausage and olives in the corner. You get the idea. I'll make it as complicated and expensive as possible for myself, when if I'd given it a little thought, I could have done something more thematically pleasing for less time and money. Care to help me think? I live in Brooklyn, so I could do something loosely middle eastern or even Indian. Not necessarily looking for a strict theme, of course, just food that matches in some way. What have you done that's worked well for you? Thanks in advance for giving my lazy brain and taste buds a break.
