Today Waterford hosted a Day Prom for Key Center School in Franconia, Va., which serves students with intellectual disabilities and autism.
For the fifth year, nearly 50 Key Center students travelled to Waterford’s Springfield location and enjoyed fun, food and dancing – celebrating one of the most memorable adolescent milestones.
With a theme of “Vegas Baby”, the Waterford ballroom, already decked out with sparkling chandeliers, was adorned with casino decorations. The student planning committee determined the menu and Executive Chef Michael Rogers and his team were happy to prepare the array of fun finger foods that included pizza, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks and waffle fries. Students began dancing to the tunes of the DJ as soon as they entered the ballroom and the fun lasted till the end with the final parent/child dance.
Earlier in the day, students of Edison High School’s cosmetology program visited the Key Center students to provide hair and makeup consultations and to help everyone prepare for the big event. More than 20 students from Robert E. Lee High School, who have served as peer mentors to the Key Center students throughout the year, were also in attendance.
Every high school student deserves a prom, and this Day Prom gives the students from Key Center School a chance to have a gorgeous, wonderful experience that will give them beautiful memories that will be theirs forever.
Waterford was honored to be a part of this special day and looks forward to hosting a similar event at its Fair Oaks location next week.

Having been inspired by the delicious Thanksgiving feast of this past week, I wanted to share with you the menu from our wedding. Because there are so many option on the menu, Waterford customers can create a menu that is completely their own. This was one of the planning areas where my husband had the most input. He really handled the band (ENCORE from Watshington Talent Agency) and the food.
We offered a chicken dish, a meat dish and a vegetarian option. Offering a variety of entrees allowed for all of our guests to select exactly what they wanted.
At our tasting we had an opportunity to taste all three dishes and to get the chef’s input on which sides would complement each. It was great to have this one-on-one attention from the person who would be overseeing our reception.
We wanted the meal to have a classy, sophisticated feel, so we added a lemon sorbet intermezzo. We also had the meal plated and served, but buffet was also an option. Instead of a wedding cake, we topped the meal off with cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake. They were delicious!
We got so many compliments on the meal! I was overjoyed with how the meal (and the entire evening) turned out.

“The Waterford is a great value for your money. In NOVA the price per plate can be through the roof, and finding a location that was within our budget but still allowed us to have an open bar all night was great. The Waterford’s staff is very professional and they really know their stuff. I was especially impressed with the food, we were able to have a carving station, an entree, a starch, two vegetable dishes and a salad. We had a full bar during our cocktail hour, wine service during dinner and then a full bar for the remaining three hours of the reception.”
Thanks for the kind words Bridget! So glad we could play such a big role in your big day!
