Some friends and I are planning a small food pot luck with small food, (mini wieners, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes) just to make it seam like you're a giant type thing and I wondering if any one had any ideas about what to bring?

You could make "hamburger cookies".  (I've also seen them with red-dyed vanilla frosting to look like ketchup.) You could bring mini-bananas, and clementines or tangerines (which both look like small oranges).  Or you could make pizzas on pita bread or bagels...not super-small but smaller than regular pizzas.

Or, if you're REALLY intense, you could do like this Craftster did.

Hope that helps!

Some more ideas:

- Cupcakes baked in a mini muffin tin.
- Fruit tarts in a mini muffin tin (I have made these with a simple shortbread crust and cherry pie filling)
- Mini pizzas can also be made on flour tortillas - crisp them slightly first so they're not soggy.
- Mini meatballs - take any recipe and just make them smaller.
- Mini sandwiches - cut out with a cookie cutter

You could check in the library for one of these books for more ideas:
Small-Batch Baking by Debby Maugans Nakos
Tiny Treats: Fun Foods to Make and Eat (an American Girl book)

Also, check out online sites about bento (Japanese lunches). There are quite a few prepared mini foods out there for lunches - sausages, pudding cups, etc. - plus those sites will have recipes for other stuff that is lunchbox sized, too.

The author of notmartha.org went through a tiny food obsession. She has a couple recipes on her website here:http://www.notmartha.org/tomake/
They are under the baking and coking experiments section.

Easy Bake oven cakes!  I swear someday I am going to get another easy Bake oven and bake my little heart out.  Actually I'd like to have a whole mini kitchen.

I watched Nigella Express the other day and maybe you could make some mini-chocolate croissant. All you need is a ready rolled puff pastry (with butter), a bar of chocolate (any kind) and an egg.

I have made some berry pies before, which is also a good idea as well: http://windyscorner.info/windy/?p=213

Otherwise, usual stuff like cheese with pineapple sticks, mini-sausages, mini-pizzas, mini-samosas, jam tarts etc...

if you haven't done the party yet, here's another idea: mini chicken parmagiano!

get some flattish chicken nuggets. bake them on a cookie sheet according to the directions. take them out of the oven, and put about a teaspoon of spaghetti sauce on top of each one, then a sprinkle of italian seasoning and a few shreds of mozzarella. broil for a minute to two minutes, until cheese melts, then serve over little piles of angel hair pasta lightly tossed with red sauce.

What about really little sandwiches?

Take a loaf of bread and slice it as thin as you can - or buy some bread that's already thin-sliced.  Make a sandwich, but don't over-fill it - maybe some thin slices of cucumber, or a bit of lox and a bit of cream cheese, or a piece of roast beef and a bit of mustard.  Then cut it into 4 triangles - and if you want, cut each triangle in half so you have 8 really little triangles.  Think tea sandwiches, miniaturized even more than tea sandwiches normally are.
