How to do dumplings for a large party?

saltysnack | Jan 25, 201501:54 PM     14

I'm going to host a Chinese New Year party for roughly 50 people. My plan is to make / serve easy snacks and dumplings that don't require me to to be active at the stove during the party.

I've read that boiling frozen dumplings (that I buy from my local Chinese market) is a great options. But my question is -- how do I serve them? Room temp on a platter with sauce? Or do I need a warming plate? And if I use a warming plate do I need lettuce leaves under them?

Tea eggs also sound appealing.
I'd also love to make use of my crock pot. Is there a good option for something I can do in there, that's easy to eat? A sausage or meatball type thing?

Along with advice on dumplings, any other appetizer ideas are welcome!
