40 Birthday Party Celebrating the 70s forward - what appetizers do you serve?

My husband and I are planning a 40th birthday party for ourselves. We are planning music covering the last 4 decades, inviting guests to come dressed as their favorite decade, drinks and appetizers. What appetizers would you serve that would be indicative of the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s.

      cheese balls (rolled in nuts, please)...spinach and artichoke dip...jello salad...that awful hot dip with dried beef and cream cheese.

    2. Definately go with the spinach and artichoke dip. Cocktail weiners. Meatballs in the Grape Jelly sauce. Onion dip. Little sandwiches with the crust cut off. Pinwheel sandwiches.Teriyaki chicken wings.

      1. Pigs in a blanket :) Maybe some English Muffin pizzas LOL :)
