Menu suggestions

I always seem to have trouble putting a full menu together for parties once 1 or 2 dishes are chosen (usually the DH's request). We have a couple coming for a special birthday weekend, and we're thinking about a duck gumbo (I'm a Louisiana transplant living in Denmark, so I love making foods from home that guests here haven't had) but not sure what to serve with it. I can do it as an appetizer portion or a main, as the first night they're here will be more informal, but I would want something else either way plus a dessert.

For the birthday dinner, the request so far are scallops with risotto (first course) and beef wellington. I would like 2-3 other small dishes, as we usually eat over several hours.

Would appreciate any suggestions!
