Caterining options for small party?

I'm looking for ideas for a small get together I'm hosting soon with both adults and children (about 30 people total). It's an afternoon affair (3:00 PM) and will hopefully be outside. Since it's summer (and hot), I'm leaning towards cold options but am looking for ideas beyond the boring old sandwich platter...any thoughts on food/vendors I should look into? I'm in the Wellesley area, but anything in MetroWest would be fine, and I don't need service - just the food. Thanks!

*Edit: Eeks, sorry about the typo in the headline.

  1. Why not do either a Clambake or BBQ. I know Marty's Caterers are doing specials on I believe both. I have had them do summer parties for me and have never been disappointed. They travel everywhere. They are located in Stoneham.

    I have also used Wildflour Catering in Charlestown and Fireside Catering in Burlington
