Oh Joy:
How about a simple but pretty fruit bouquet?  Just skewer different colors of grapes/melon balls/berries and serve in a low-height flower vase.  Or do caprese skewers with cherry/grape tomatoes and mini mozzarella balls or sliced circles of string cheese and baby spinach leaves.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs with blue cheese dressing for dipping.

I got the recipe here on Ehell but I can't find the link.  It wasn't in the recipe folder, it was actually part of a thread because the OP was mad that her husband shared the recipe with friends without asking her first.  At this point I don't even use the recipe from the site but but make it on my own, loosely it's about:

3 lbs ground chicken
1 large can panko breadcrumbs (seasoned)
3 eggs, beaten
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup Franks Red Hot sauce
chicken broth
3-4 stalks celery, chopped very fine

Mix ground chicken, breadcrumbs, beaten eggs together.
Mix 3/4 cup hot sauce and 3/4 stick melted butter together, and mix into meat mixture.
Add chopped celery.
Add chicken broth a little at a time, if mix is too dry/tough.  I've found adding the broth keeps the meatballs from getting too dried out.

Make medium sized meatballs and cook in oven on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 15-20 minutes.
When meatballs are done, mix leftover melted butter and hot sauce, then toss meatballs in sauce to coat.  (add more butter/hotsauce as you desire.  I usually make more sauce to coat if I'm bringing them to a party.)

Serve with blue cheese and celery sticks for dipping.

Oh, I realized I have another potluck standard that's super impressive, but pretty simple. They form a whole greater than the sum of their parts!

Oreo Bonbons:

When I make mine, i leave a toothpick in each, so they're easier to dip. I dip them twice in chocolate, freezing in between for a couple of minutes so they stay on the toothpicks, and then I sprinkle with the colored sugar you can find in the cake decorating section of the grocery store.

We did these recently but you need about an hour in the morning before work.

If your interested in dessert search for sopapillia cheesecake. Swoon worthy.

Outdoor Girl:
The asparagus one reminded me of one that a friend's mother makes.

Take a slice of ham and butter it with cream cheese.  Then take a pickled asparagus spear and wrap the ham around it.  Cut them into bite sized pieces and use a toothpick to hold them together.

So simple but so good.
