Party ideas?

We're having my son's birthday party at our house this weekend. He's turning 1 so it will just be family and close friends. We don't want to do a big meal so I'm just going to have a few appetizers, and of course cake and ice cream. I'm looking for ideas for appetizers. I'll do a cheese and cracker tray and a vegetable tray, but I need some more ideas. Anything would be really appreciated!

  • I personally really like pinwheels and it is so easy.4 ingredients cream cheese, lunch meat (ham and turkey),tortillas i prefer medium ones and a long bunch of green onions (chopped).Spread cream cheese in middle be generous and then add lunch meat as if making pizza then add chopped onion down the middle use a tiny strip of cream cheese to close.

  • Pigs in a blanket (Little hot dogs rolled in pillsbury crescent rolls cut into little triangles). Sliced Tomatos & Mozzarella (just drizzle with oil & vinegar). Deviled Eggs (boil the eggs and take out the yoke, Mix yoke with mayo, dijon mustard & relish).
    Spinach dip (buy at the grocery I think it's Lays brand) with tortilla chips or pumpernickle bread. Quiche, Baked clams (buy frozen at the grocery store). Shrimp platter (just boil the shrimp & serve cold) with cocktail sauce.
