How about a nice chicken salad made with pecans and red grapes?
And, to make them dainty, you can use regular wheat and white breads, and cut them with a flower shaped cookie cutter and have a tray of daisies. Or, you could quarter them into triangles, put 2 points together and have a tray of butterflies.

Perhaps you can use filo, cut into little squares and baked in a mini muffin pan, and then filled with a light sandwich filling.

Braunsweiger with sliced olives and cream cheese on brown bread makes a tasty little morsel. Or you could make miniature puffs of choux pastry and fill them with chicken salad. I sometimes order "silver dollar rolls" from our local bakery... they are like tiny hamburger buns, and you can put on a dab of mayo, a bit of sliced ham or turkey, and a little piece of leaf lettuce, then stick in a toothpick with an olive on top.

Here's a recipe I found on the web just now:

Seafood Tea Sandwich Recipe

3/4 cup soft butter or cream cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped chives
20 slices bread of your choice
2 cups finely chopped crab, shrimp or lobster
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the butter and chives and spread the mixture onto 1 side of each slice of bread. Mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl, then evenly spread the mixture over 10 of the bread slices. Top with the other 10 slices, remove the crusts, and cut. Makes 40 quarters or 30 fingers.
