Stuff I have done before:

Whole salmon (often pretty cheap I find) with dill and lemon slices
Canapes - we have mini Yorkshire puds with a teeny bit of crème fraiche and a sliver of rare beef, bruschetta with goats cheese and spring onion, sundried tomatos on melba toast rounds
Olives
Continental meats presented on a platter
Grissini with parma ham - I twist the ham round
basic crudités and dips - I have been known to buy smart price dips and decant into nice pots and you just need carrot batons, cucumber, tortilla chips and celery for dipping
A massive pork pie from the butchers
Salad with gorge dressing - make it special with feta, fruit etc in it
Whole Ham for at the table slicing
Cheese board
Beautiful fresh bread to pile the meats on, buy real butter to go on it
Dim sum if you have time
home made potato salad always goes down well
