As a longtime vegetarian, I’m going to tell you what I’ve found:
if you label it “vegetarian” there are lots of set-in-their-ways people who will loathe it instantly. Call it by its actual name – mac and cheese, bruschetta, kabobs, caprese, ravioli, pizza, whatever – and they think it sounds great. I would go to any lengths possible to stop labelling things to the non-veg side, and just give the veg side a heads-up.
Also, since you’re clearly a great hostess and thinking things through in a considerate way, I’m sure you already thought of a way to tell the full vegetarians what has chicken? I’ve had times where I accidentally ate fish because people told me the dish was vegetarian. I was really upset and it was really hard on my body since I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 10 years.
