inexpensive meals worthy of dinner party

I'm looking for dishes or ingredients that are nice enough to serve at a dinner party but that don't cost a fortune when the guest list creeps past eight people. Of course, where I live (Hawaii), everything costs a fortune, but especially anything "gourmet" -- kalamata olives, prosciutto, radicchio, fennel, organic anything -- if you can find it at all. I've never seen a bean, canned vegetable or ground beef dish that I would serve to company... any ideas?
