You could also make some sweet potato bread…

Instead of honey glazed ham you could try a more party friendly protein like andouille sausage kebabs or smoked bbq brisket served with warm flour tortillas.

Other side dishes: Green bean casserole w/fried onion straws.

could do fried chicken or turkey instead.
you have a lot of starches, replace the potato salad with a bean or lettuce one

Instead of the ham I'd do chicken or a pot roast.
