The food Elisha considers a MUST on any party table:
1) Cheeses (a variety of flavors)
The goal is for the food to be appetizing all night long. So, stay away from baked items (like baked brie), or massive bowls of dip. (If you're going to serve a dip, serve it in ramakin-sized portions and then replace entire bowl as needed.)

1 small log of plain goat cheese
Rough chop all the herbs very fine. Add herbs, lemon zest, salt and pepper together on a plate and, using fingers, blend thoroughly.Spread herb mixture evenly on plate and then carefully roll goat cheese log to cover outside of cheese. Serve.
