Ideas for a large-ish dinner party (10 to 15)

I'm making a birthday dinner party for my sister (early 50s). The party is also to celebrate a significant achievement of hers so will include more than the usual family members; there will be anywhere from 10 to 15 people, half of whom I don't know well or at all. I'm a good and experienced cook, and I'm very comfortable in the kitchen, but I'm used to cooking for smaller groups. I need ideas! [more inside]

Looking for party/finger-food recipes that use eggs

Due to a series of odd events, I find myself in possession of several cartons of eggs, way more than I will be able to eat over the next week or so. Coincidentally, I will be going to a party on Friday and have agreed to contribute to the "finger-food only" buffet. I have a decent recipe for basic deviled eggs, but what else can I make that can be picked up and eaten without the use of utensils? I'm a decent intermediate cook, and have access to most ingredients. Both savory or sweet suggestions would be most welcome, as would recipes that don't particularly "feature" the eggs, so long as they get used up. Bonus points for things that can be made today or tomorrow and served on Friday night, although I will have most of the day on Friday to cook if necessary.

Fish dish

Need suggestions for seafood entrees that will hold up well (not get rubbery or slimy or unsafe) for a couple of hours on a buffet table. Soups/stews OK--we'll have access to a crock pot.

Need a Beachy menu for 30 people

My husband's extended family is renting a beach house this summer and each family is going to cook one night's meal for about 30 people. We want to do a low country boil, which is generally potatoes, corn cobs, sausage and shrimp with Old Bay seasoning boiled together. We can jazz it up by adding crabs or other kinds of shellfish, but I'm looking for another non-seafood item to go with the meal. I'm not a huge fan of seafood, and one other family doesn't like it much either, so I'm trying to think of something extra we could make so we have another choice besides the sausage. I could also use some suggestions for side dishes and desserts. My husband is a chef and keeps proclaiming that since it's his vacation he shouldn't have to plan or cook, so I want to try to do this without bothering him too much, but still impress him.

Eat the Humans!

So let's say, hypothetically, I wanted to throw a party of some kind, themed around monster movies. The twist, though, is that we'll be rooting for the monsters. To this end, I want to find human-shaped food. [crunchy bits inside]
