Default Need ideas for party food

Hello all, I need some help. I'm having an " open studio " party next month and am asking my guests to bring either " the champagne of beers or the beer of champagne". That's kind of a joke my husband and I had while dating....cheap champagne followed by beer. Lol...classy, huh? Anyway, we are celebrating the completion of a large sculpture I'm working on and have invited oodles of friends. 5 could show up, or 105. I'm thinking of cooking up some bread ahead of time and making brochettes ( bread, mozzarella,and basil ) and just having the oven hot enough for reheating. The problem is that we are going to be too busy explaining the art, etc, to be manning the oven. But..I really would like to incorporate it into the evening. After all, as you know, it's really cool to have your own Wfo...! Do y'all have any great party food ideas that I could cook ahead of time and serve warm or cold? The garden's doing well, lots of tomatoes, basil, cucumbers and green beans, so using those ingredients would be fun. What goes well with beer and champagne? Chips, dips, maybe some pre cooked desserts like pizza dough with marscapone and chocolate? Bear in mind that July in Texas could be well into the 100's, even late evening. And if you're in the neighborhood, please join us! ( I may put you in charge of the Wfo!) Please toss ideas this way! Thanks!!

I'm thinking you are going to get a LOT of suggestions on this but here is my take:

Artichoke dip. Make it in advance and heat it up in the oven.
Chicken wings. Make then in advance and heat them up - even easier, buy the ones at Costco (they taste pretty good)
Bacon wrapped asparagus. I've made these in the oven and they are unique. (make them in advance and simply re-heat}

Finger food is endless. I assume you want something that requires little time during your event. One more suggestion, go to dollar tree and buy the foil trays; use and toss.

Oh yea, EVERYTHING goes with beer

Those home tomatoes and basil should be a star! 1/2 tomatoes take out the seeds and chop add chopped basil salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Place on crusty bread simple but the flavours fantastic.

Assorted crackers, chips. This wants to be baked at 350 for around 15 minutes. No reason it couldn't be cooked in advanced and simply warmed up.

1 (6.5 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 clove garlic, chopped

Cucumber dip
2 cups of Greek style yoghurt
3 med cucumbers
2 crushed clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
Line a sieve or colander add yoghurt cover and leave in fridge for 4 hours to drain. Cut cucumbers in halfs so you can take the seeds out with a tsp. course grate the cucumbers into a t towel and squeeze to remove excess moisture.
Mix all ingredients serve with carrot sticks and celery sticks but crackers will do
Regards dave

I've gotten good reponse to poppers done on the grill. Should work well on WFO. I used smoked salmon but bacon works as well.
