Ways to Serve Hors D'oeuvres

I am having a large cocktail party and need to make many different kinds of hors d'oeuvres for the guests. I've been trying to think of different ways that finger food can be served, to make sure there is variety. For example, I don't want to have like 20 different kinds of things on bread.

My question is: What are the different ways to serve hors d'oeuvres?

The list I came up with so far: (1) on bread, (2) in a small disposable cup with a fork or spoon, (3) on a spoon, (4) on a stick, (5) with a toothpick.
