    Guacamole and chips.

    Onion dip (sour cream with Lipton's Onion Soup Mix mixed in) with ruffled potato chips.

    Anything made in a crock pot (-:.

    Jello Salad.

    Sandwiches with alfalfa sprouts.

    Brownies, ala Cheech and Chong, if it's legal in your country (-:.

    Except for the brownies, I remember eating these things in the 70s (-:.

    Get some noshing snacks that are still around, but don't have a real high profile so that many people will say either "What are those?" or "Oh, they still have those?", such as Munchos and Bugles, and Screaming Yellow Zonkers and Fiddle Faddle.

    Also, since everyone was young during the 70s, I'd say very brightly decorated cookies and cupcakes.

    Lines of powdered sugar on the coffee table would be funny. But if someone calls the cops, you'd probably have to go downtown until the situation got cleared up.

    In the 70's we saw an influx of some old favs but "new and improved". Big portioned versions of tv dinners, and foods you could cook in this new fangled invention called a microwave oven. We couldn't all have a microwave because they cost $1200 at Sears.(big bucks in those days) The big craze was fondue. The fondue pot was the gift of choice for weddings and showers. Basic steak and green salads were common restaurant items. Julia Child was informing the country of how to cook French food.

    At-home fondue sets and crock pots became really popular during the 1970s, so I would try to incorporate dishes made in both of those. Also, "convenience salads" were at the forefront of entertaining menus, so maybe a 3-Bean salad.
