Holiday party brainstorm

We're throwing a housewarming/holiday party in a couple of weeks, and I am working on my menu. I need to incorporate items that are kid, diabetic and omnivore friendly, and some wheat, possibly gluten free stuff would be good, too.

So far, these are my thoughts:

Hot bean soup (Not sure if I'm going black bean-corn or white bean-garlic here)

Toasted baguette slices (can go with soup, hummus or a bruschetta topping)
Bruschetta topping
Samosas (frozen from Costco), getting dipping stuff from a local indian place
Spring Rolls (ditto)
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut into cool shapes (kids)
Veggie tray with a creamy dip

Pumpkin Oatmeal cookies
Gingerbread mini cupcakes
Chocolate raspberry cookies
Dark chocolate dipped satsuma mandarin wedges (attempting low sugar here)

Drinks? I'm totally stumped there. Probably non-alcoholic.

Am I being too exotic with the foods? Any obvious and awesome thing I'm forgetting? I'm wanting to do a mostly finger foods spread with the soup kind of filling the cracks. This is my first big party that I've hosted since I went vegan, and I'm the only vegan that will be there.
