Summer Birthday Party for 40 Guests

Hello Fellow Foodies!

My husband turns 60 this September so I am planning on surprising him with a party in August. We have a large yard with multiple vegetable gardens, raspberry bushes and fruit trees. We even have hens for fresh eggs. We haven't had our family and friends over for eons and I thought it would be a great time to serve up our home grown delights. Please provide feedback regarding the menu below, which I'm considering.

Appetizer

Gazpacho
Panzanella
Shrimp Cocktail

Main Course

Eggplant Parmesan
Garden Veggie Frittatas (cut into squares)
Teriyaki Grilled Chicken Sticks
Quinoa Tossed with Garden Veggies and Olive Oil
Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese

Desserts

Fresh Raspberry Pie
Chocolate Cake
Homemade Cookies (TBD)

In another thread, someone suggested serving the gazpacho from a pitcher in shooter glasses. Does this sound like a good idea?
