Filo pastries can be wonderful- you just bake the shells and add things like chicken curry, chicken salad, smoked salmon, etc.  You can make it as fancy as you wish.  The filo shells can be used for “dinner” or “dessert.”

maybe a simple cheese board, some deviled eggs, mini wraps, maybe some volovant filled with pate ?

We had two at my MIL’s birthday party that might work.  One was fruit skewers.  The skewers seem to make it fancier.  🙂  And the other was gazpacho shooters.  The chilled soup was nice since it was already getting hot here in April.  And I’ve never even heard of a black-tie housewarming but congrats on the house.

@MrsBroccoli:  I’ve always gotten them pre-made, but I’ve never done them for anything “fancy.”  The curried chicken is yummy!

It started out as a spanakopita in a cup and morphed from there. I know it calls for mushrooms but it can be easily made without. You can always use olive oil in place of butter. I just prefer the taste with butter. This recipe will yield about 100 cups. Feel free to adjust the quantities as necessary.

 1 Large Sweet Onion, Minced  
1/2 lb Minced Mushrooms, I use white but you can use any you prefer 
2 Packages Frozen Chopped Spinach  
4 oz. Asiago or Parmesan  
8 oz. Feta  
8 oz. Mozzarella  
2 Packages Neufchatel, Room Temperature  
6 Packages Phyllo Cups  
1/2 Stick Butter, cut in half  
Minced Garlic, to taste

Directions

    Add 1/4 stick butter to pan. Add onions, cook slowly to caramelize. Wait until Onions are almost ready and add mushrooms and garlic.
While mushrooms and onion mix is cooking thaw spinach in microwave and squeeze out moisture. (I used a mesh strainer).  
When mushroom onion mixture is finished add 1/4 stick butter and spinach. Cook until completed.  
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  
Let cool slightly. Add asiago/parmesan then feta then mozzarella. Mix well. Add Neufchatel to mixture. Stir until mixed completely.  
Spoon into phyllo cups. Place cups onto baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes.  
Place on platter and serve. Can be eaten cold but warm is best.

ETA: This is not a fancy recipe but it is a tasty one. I usually serve it for large parties.
