New Years Eve; must have buffet foods?

Just as it states in the title really.

There's going to be around 12 approx people, maybe a few less, perhaps a few more.

It's the first time I have really hosted a small party. None of us drink, really. So I won't be buying much alcohol, mainly soft drinks and a couple bottles of wine.

For food, I know the standard sarnies, a cheese board and crackers, some pâté, olives, sausage rolls, some pigs in blankets, crisps, pizza's, quiche and things similar, but I want to make it a little more special.

Does anyone have any great ideas for making an extra special buffet?

Thanks!

Baked Brie
Mini Yorkshire puds. Waitrose sell them already assembled www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/mini-yorkshire-puddings/468128-65974-65974 but it's cheap and easy to make them yourself, either completely from scratch www.bbc.com/food/recipes/miniyorkshirepudding_11253 or by using Aunt Bessie's mini Yorkshires.

I wouldn’t do sandwiches on a nye buffet. People tend to pick over a while and sandwiches dry out. I often make and a fig, pancetta and Gorgonzola flat bread which in essence is a glorified pizza but does seem a bit more special.
