A Star Spangled Party

We appear to be having a Fourth of July party.
So many people have remarked to us that our deck would be a fabulous place from which to see Seattle's Fourth of July fireworks over Lake Union (apparently one of the top five displays in the country) that we decided, sort of on the spur of the moment, to invite a bunch of people.
The problem is I've never even been to a Fourth of July celebration before, so have absolutely no idea what one is supposed to DO.
Please let me know what, in your opinion, are the critical components of a successful Fourth of July party. Are there traditional things you always eat, or drink or do? Do I need to learn the words to the 'Star Spangled Banner'?
I have already bought the first accessory with which to decorate the deck.
