    Hi and welcome. I'm going to move your question to the Recipe Requests forum, as I think there will be more people there who could provide suggestions.

    The main thing that occured to me is that people that age often have dietary restrictions. So, unless you know that anything goes, it would be good to have a core of diet friendly foods that don't have a lot of fats or spices (going by my experience with my parents and their friends, who were of about that age). A few more exotic things would undoubtedly be welcome, but tried and true will ensure that everyone finds something to enjoy.

    How many people are you expecting?

    I would suggest purchasing some things ready made (i.e. sandwiches, tortilla rollups)
    Assorted bakery items (cookies, bite sized brownies, cakes, cupcakes, etc)

    Are you thinking about serving appetizers?

    Appetizer Grape Jelly and Chili Sauce Meatballs or Lil Smokies
    Hot Tamale Balls
    Chopped Salad Appetizer Shells
    Party Salad Boats

    Are we on the right track with our suggestions? Please give us some inout on what you may be looking for?

    I am sure there will people there of all ages. (not many older folks)

    Twenty guests is a manageable number.

    Are you interested in serving Appetizers? Just a meal & dessert?
    Buffet style?

    Fruit Salad Supreme use any fruits you like, dressing is really good.
    That said, I usually never put any"dressing" on fruit salad.


    Mediterranean Chicken With Dried Apricots & Prunes this is amazing. I know it sounds like a strange combo of flavors, but this will knock your socks off.
    Easy to make & is assemble the night before.


    Depending on which route you take, here are some random salad recipes.
    Spinach Salad With Oranges, Dried Cherries, and Candied Pecans
    The Ultimate Greek Salad
    Israeli Couscous Salad
    Hot German Potato Salad
    Couscous With Apples, Cranberries and Herbs

    Fresh Raspberry Tart With Vanilla Creme Fraiche EZ and most beautiful desert EVER!

    Sorry, I got off track. I forgot that you were asking for cold foods.
    Disregard any recipes that don't fit the bill

    Good luck with your party

    Keep in mind also what said 90 yo is able to chew. Sometimes things get stuck between teeth and that's none too pleasant. For that reason, it seems to me that maybe egg salad would be a good consideration.

    The party already happened, as mentioned. I'd like to know what the poster finally did decide to do back then.
