Michael’s also serves as the exclusive caterer for all private parties held at Selby Gardens in downtown Sarasota and Bay Preserve in Osprey.

On select dates during the month of December, Selby Gardens hosts Lights In Bloom, an annual holiday light exhibit with more than one million lights illuminating the Gardens!
