July 4th sides, desserts & fun!

So this Sunday, we are attending a July 4th pool party (yes, we know it's on the 3rd)...the hosts will be bbq'ing all the standards. The guests have been asked to BYOB & a side dish.
I haven't been able to make up my mind about potato salad, pasta salad, or my famous lentil salad (stolen & modified from foodnetwork).
Also, I just love cupcakes & thought it might be fun to make some cutesy themed 4th of July cupcakes. There will be about 20 of us...so certainly not anything I can't handle! ;-)

So...what are you going to bring to your 4th of July parties?

Any fabulous recipes I should look at before making my final decision on what to bring?
