Interesting veggie dips- Party menu advice...

My bf's 35th b-day celebration is Friday. I am doing all the cooking. I am trying to make it a "some of his favorite things" type of a menu, but I realize that "some of his favorite things" do not include many veggies, and the guests might like that. He does love Caprese salad, so I was thinking a Caprese Salad on a Stick situation...? Otherwise, what are some interesting/fun ways to do veggies/dips? Any creative ideas appreciated.

The menu thus far:
- Wagyu Beef mini cheesesteaks (crostini, provolone, Wagyu NY Strip, caramelized shallots and truffle oil)
- Mini Chicken Pot Pies (in porcelain Chinese soup spoons)
- Chinese Dumpligs/Pot Stickers
- Taqueria Can-Cun Salsa and fresh tortilla chips

For the cake I am going to get a large tiramisu from his favorite Italian bakery.
