Allergy-and-omni-friendly party foods?

Hi all!

Just looking for some party foods, for a New Years'. I'd planned to make a little geodesic dome out of gingerbread (piparkakut), to take and share. Buuuuuuuuuuuut I just remembered -- one of the attendees is celiac. Don't know how many other people will know to accommodate for him, but don't have the time (or the money) to remix with rice flour. Plus, something always goes wrong. It either absorbs too much water from the air and collapses away from the joins -- curse you, Australian summer! -- or buckles weirdly when I try to add the toffee. (And that doesn't even make sense. =/)

So, with three days to go: does anyone know of any quick and easy party foods that I could put together?Obviously it can't contain gluten, but nor can it contain traces of any sort of nut. It's really the nut part that's throwing me, since so much of my own diet involves them in some way. Fruit salad's always an option, but I always end up being the only person eating it. Something like joulutorttua (Finnish jam pastries) or teeny tiny cupcakes could be an option, but I haven't worked with other flours enough. Otherwise, I might just bring the dome and fill it with wheat-free lollies.

It would be fantastic if someone could help. =) Sorry for the essay!
