Refreshments for a ladies club meeting

I am responsible for refreshments for a morning meeting of my organization. I am preparing a pumpkin cake, a cream cheese pastry filled with jam, and Bugel Crunch, plus mixed nuts and French chocolate mints. I would like to serve apple slices with some sort of dip but do not want it to be sweet. Or would I just serve apple slices and cheese cubes, OR just some grapes? I need your expertise!!!

Ellen, there should be no more than 25 ladies.

I would definitely do cheese- a little protein is always wise for mid-morning breaks. For 25 ladies, 2 to 2 1/2 pounds of cheese. Grapes are a little more popular than apples- juicier. Strawberries are another pleasant option.

Be aware that most situations, the ladies want a little bite of everything and cut with this in mind.
