nibbles for champagne ideas needed

I would like to start my dinner party tonight with champagne and would like to serve a few light nibbles to go with the bubbles.
I am not really a smoked salmon lover so that is out. One of my guests does not like foie gras so that is out (which is really a shame as I just returned from Gascony and have some in the fridge). I am a bit tired of the ubiquitous cashews and flute that you see here.
So I need some inspiration.... It should be something light as we have a full dinner and I want to keep them hungry.
The rest of my menu is as follows:
Starter of steamed asparagus with vinegarette
Main of potatoes roasted in goose fat with rosemary and garlic, cote de bouef, and medley of spring green vegetables with garlic sprouts.
Dessert will most likely be tarte tatin
Why.... canapes with caviar, of course. Also, I don't see why your other guests should suffer because one doesn't eat foie gras. He/she can continue to not eat it while the other guests enjoy it....no problem.
Great question!- one I'm facing myself for tomorrow's dinner. I need something simple (no baking, so gougeres are out). Do you all think little mini "cheese balls" with walnuts, parsley, dates and goat cheese would be too heavy for champagne? FWIW I'm actually serving a sparkling rose. Thanks!
