I'm having some co-workers over for a Christmas party and none of them are paleo. I need some ideas for some good paleo finger foods. I'm thinking deviled eggs, meatballs, some veggies...What are your favorites?

Sliced cheese platter (Kerrygold has some good hard cheeses, available in bulk-sized blocks at Sam's Club or Costco)
I know strict Paleos aren't into the Paleo baking, but this is a pretty basic recipe and everyone I've made them for loved them. Paleo or not. I added pecans and cinnamon to taste in some of the batches or dark chocolate chips.
* 2 cups Almond Butter * 1 1/2 cups Canned Pumpkin * 2 egg * 2/3 cup Honey * 2 tsp Baking Soda
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Raw cheeses (if you do dairy)
Macaroons (make sure they're real macaroons - just egg whites, coconut flakes and sugar)
I made these "Fudge Babies" at my last Paleo Potluck and they were a big hit. They're made of dates, walnuts, cocoa powder, and vanilla.
Artichokes with garlic butter
Any sort of meat on a stick
Babagonosh and cumcumber to dip in it
Roasted nuts (I like pecans)
Canalope wrapped in good ham
Shrimp or scallops or asparagus wrapped in bacon or prosciutto and broiled.
Chicken wings (baked)
Vegetables with guacamole
Flank steak done the day before, covered in chimichuri sauce ( olive oil, cilantro, garlic, spices, lime juice) and refrigerated. Cut into strips or squares and skewer with a bamboo cocktail toothpick.
where can I find the Jalepenio's cut in half and stuffed with chicken and baked recipe?
Nobody is going to go through carb withdrawal in one meal... plus, some of those suggestions had sugar/honey.
A big bowl of berries with coconut cream served on the side (people can add the cream if they want).
Roasted pieces of coconut
You might consider making them some potatoes or rice to give them their carb fix. They are not paleo and would probably experience carb withdrawal or even potentially low blood sugar if withdrawn quickly from carbs. I don't see any point in subjecting them to potential low carb withdrawal or cravings unless they actually intended to go through with it all the way.
