I would say something like Passed Hor’ D (can never spell it) Reception, can you have the wait staff dressed in black tie and walking around with silver (or acrylic or glass) platters so that your guests can sample it?  you can also spread the word that it will be a lot like a gala (that’s what your description reminds me of) where guests can mingle and relax….

I am having a similar reception, though not black tie. We are also reserving the stationary food to the cold offerings, and doing passed hot tapas style. I think the suggestion to do some passed hot offerings and wait staff in black tie is a good one.

I also think decor will help maintain the formality. In addition, you may want to splurge a little on high end invitations. I think invitations do really set up the tone of the event. A separate card with reception details can include a brief description of the style.

Last, make sure your caterer knows what you are going for. He or she can be a big help.
