birthday dinner at home ideas

So my birthday is coming up in 2 weeks-ish. I am planning on having 10-15 people over for birthday dinner. (They RSVP'd but we'll see if they show up. Last year it was me and 2 friends.)

My birthday is on a weekend, so I have plenty of time to cook. My birthday dinner is usually new orleans style bbq shrimp, but I overloaded on them during my trip in October.

I was thinking doing breakfast for dinner or possibly a giant pot of meatballs. Possibly something warm as the weather in Philly is pretty chilly.

Any ideas/recipes? I'm open to anything- I'm just lacking in creativity this year.

Thanks :)
