What are some good food ideas for my son's 3rd b-day party?

We are on a VERY tight budget this year, so we are doing a potluck for his b-day. He is an extremely picky eater, but I can't feed everyone mac n cheese. lol Any ideas for menu options that are appetizerish???...I was planning to do a decently large spread of just appetizers and everyone can munch on those the whole time.

  • Definitely the fruits and veggies, meat and cheese trays but remember, it is cheaper to do it yourself. Recruit some help for cutting and arranging if you need it, we always do that ourselves.

  • spinach-artichoke dip with chips, cheeseball with crackers, make your own sandwich bar with different things to choose from (fun and filling)

  • Raw veggies with dip, fresh fruit, for a special treat dip fruit or pretzels in chocolate. Grapes are always good here, but cut them in half first.

  • Sandwich rings or pinwheels using refrigerated crescent dough (a plus if you can find them on sale somewhere).
