Deck the halls with Christmas starters??

We are gearing up for our annual festive meal with friends and need to produce a starter this year and AskMeFi is bound to have some Thoughts and Suggestions. There are, of course, complications ... Simply put, the starter will need to be cold, as the meal is hosted each year by whoever is cooking the main course and thus etiquette dictates that you don't get between the main course cook and their oven /hob. We will be travelling to said friend's house (approx 30 minutes drive) so anything sloppy is at risk and anything hot won't be by the time we get there.

Last year's starter was a prawn cocktail and our own contributions have previously included mackerel pate and red onion tarts. The main course will be duck. One person doesn't like tomatoes, another doesn't like blue cheese, everyone likes spices, no-one is vegetarian but no-one would object to an animal protein-free starter. I have the entire day to cook if necessary (meal is on a Saturday evening). A sharing platter type starter would be perfectly fine.

Hit me with your best sh(all)ots, AskMeFi.
