vegetarian lunch for 12 including picky kids?

Looking for ideas for a lunch. My family is coming over to my apartment this weekend. The group will include:
-a couple of family members who prefer things to be 'fancy'
-5 kids, ages 6-14, including 2 picky eaters
-my wife and I are vegetarian, and I don't want to cook or serve meat
-My wife's allergic to mushrooms
-also, my wife and I aren't super into cooking, and we have a 10 month old so would prefer things that could be prepared ahead of time or something

So we kind of want to make maybe one or two things and buy the rest. I was thinking something fun like 'build your own taco' but maybe something a bit more interesting than that.

Any suggestions? We live in downtown Toronto so have access to basically any kind of catering/bakery/grocery/whatever.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
