Suggestions Wanted - Open House/Baby Shower

I have a bit of a conundrum and knew my fellow serious eaters might have some suggestions for me. I am hosting an open house baby shower for my Sis-in-law in a few weeks. The food plan must be revised as it has turned from an intimate 20 people to a group of possibly 70+. I am looking at the number of people, food prices, and my budget and crying. I need some suggestions for lower cost/high yield food. One friend suggested pasta salad, strawberry lemonade, and cookies. Any other ideas?

Invites have already gone out with a note that light refreshments would be served so I can't not offer some nibbles.

Thanks!
