Rats...I was going to suggest watermelon skewers.
How about that perennial 80's crock pot favorite...mini meatballs in grape jelly and cocktail sauce.

Deviled eggs are the go-to appetizer of choice around here. I have stuffed dates with slivers of manchego cheese and a pecan half - those are kind of appetizer/dessert option.

Prosciutto Wrapped Melon
Bruschetta on pita chips, bagel chips or triscuit
Sweet and sour meatballs
Bagel chips, cream cheese and fish (lox, sturgeon or roe will all work)

Hard-boiled eggs, peeled, cut in half with yolks removed. Yolks are mixed with a variety of yummy things that may include mayo, mustard, pickle relish and other stuff, then spooned back into the eggs where the yolk used to be. There are a bazillion recipes. Around here, the making of them is a competitive sport so there is always more than one variety at any given potluck.

My favorite is dried ham wrapped around swiss cheese or /and Manchango cheese (the real stuff) and cantelope. Use prosciutto, Spanish, or Virginia dried ham. Secure with a toothpick.

My mother used to put a touch of curry in her deviled eggs. Yum! Just a touch of mayo, curry, salt and pepper in the smashed yolks and restuff the white.
