Memorial Day Special

Happy Waterford Wedding Wednesday and Happy Memorial Day!!! All military clients will receive 10 free chair covers in addition to the 5% off rentals from now until June 13th! We appreciate our military!!!

Creative Catering of Virginia

I have to tell you, it has been an absolute pleasure working alongside the staff of Creative Catering of Virginia. We have worked together a handful of times this past year. The staff is very attentive to their own duties but they are very respectful, considerate, and helpful to other venders they work with…including us 🙂

Creative Catering of Virginia must be doing something right, they’ve been in business over 35 years!!

They cater to all! From backyard BBQs to upscale weddings and everything in between…such as birthday parties, corporate events, and even military homecomings. They love our troops just as much as Waterford does.

Creative Catering of VA offers a large and diverse menu. When asked what their most popular food items were, they told us the mini twice baked potatoes (see picture) and the Chesapeake Bay mini crab cakes were the most popular appetizers. The most popular entree was the herb-encrusted beef tenderloin. Oh and let me tell you we have to agree with those twice baked potatoes…we stalk them at bridal shows to snag a few 🙂

Creative Catering of VA is unique in that they have an internally trained staff, with captains that have been working with the company for years. Their proposals are easy to read and their pricing is listed on the website…so no surprises.

Waterford Event Rentals thinks you will be pleased all around with Creative Catering of Virginia’s food and service, they have impressed us and we’re pretty picky (in a good way of course).

Stationary Obsession

If you need anything paper, put your faith in {Paper} Dolls Design!

Gourmet Gang

We have been eating Gourmet Gang for some time now!!! I think we  were introduced to this awesome business in 2001. As you can see they keep us coming back. The service is outstanding and the food is divine.

Most of us know Gourmet Gang as the restaurant that is open for short hours and delivers to only businesses. I think the short hours keep us wanting more…kind of like always wanting Chik-fil-a on Sunday! We all know that feeling! Point being, Gourmet Gang is much more…they cater!!!! Did you know that? So, the next time you are having a party or a wedding, keep them in mind. They take the time to sit down with their clients and develop a menu specific to their needs. Oh, and it’s not just sandwiches…they prepare almost anything…shrimp, beef, chicken etc.! You are sure to be pleased. Like I said earlier, the service is great and the food is soooo good. Oh yeah, I didn’t mention the delicious cupcakes and cookies.


We had the pleasure of helping Gourmet Gang set up a booth at the Norfolk NEX Bridal Show. Check out the pictures.

Shhhhh……don’t tell! The Battlefield Gourmet Gang is open on Saturday’s. It’s our secret.
