Help with a Southern Menu

Hi everyone I'm working on a southern style menu for a big party that I'm having in November. Here is what I'm having so far:

Apps
??

Entrees
Fried Chicken
Fried Catfish
Slow Cooked BBQ Pork (?)

Sides
Mac & Cheese
Collard Greens
Candied Yams
Beans & Rice
Cornbread

Dessert
??

Drinks
??

As you can see I need some help with Apps, I just want some good finger foods with a southern touch. Also what kind of Dessert would be good? We are having a birthday cake but we would also like some something else.

For the entrees we were thinking of adding a slow cooked BBQ Pork dish, but I'm still looking for one more suggestion.

We want a signature drink and my wife doesn't like Mint Juleps so we need something besides that. We would like to serve it in a punch bowl so we were thinking of something like planter's punch or lynchburg lemonade.

I'm just looking for some advice to tidy up the menu, this is going to be a serve yourself buffett type of dinner. Any other suggestions are welcome too.

Thanks
BM
