need a ham.....confusion abounds, please help

I wanted to have a ham for a party this weekend and looking into it has gotten me so confused. Hoping to find something great and festive for a platter of make your own sandwiches.

This is a first for me and I'm not sure whether to cook a ham or get the fully cooked smoked ham, cured or uncured, spiral cut which is prettier on the platter or boneless. I am overwhelmed by the amount of options. I wanted to get the best flavor, stay clear of nitrites and hormones and chemical flavor/color and try to be organic without getting reamed on the price.

Any suggestions other than the obvious whole foods? I also know about the boneless Neiman Ranch boneless ham from Costco.
