I'm planning a special event and would like ideas for light refreshments. I'm thinking crackers & cheese, fruits/veggies, what else? what kind of drinks should be there as well?

Crisped pita chips with hummus and baba ganoush for dipping. Both dips have olive oil as an ingredient, but an additional drizzle for presentation is good, and for extra flavouring a sprinkle of sumac.
For crackers and cheese don't kill the cheese with heavily flavoured crackers. Water biscuit stuff.
Fruit goes well on a cheese plate, grapes, figs, maybe dates.
Also web search for wine pairings with the cheeses you plan to serve. My fav is blue cheese with port.1
