Emerald Florencia Starry Night Kickoff Party

Asolo Rep's Starry Night at Florencia in The ForestThe Asolo Rep Starry Night party was a huge test for the entertainment capabilities of Emerald Homes’ new Florencia Model at The Forest. This fantastic estate home proved up to the task with almost 70 people in attendance for the sneak preview event.

Morton’s Gourmet Market & Catering of Sarasota catered the lavish event on December 15th that featured a cocktail reception followed by dinner and a cameo performance by actors of the Asolo Rep’s production of The Matchmaker. The Emerald Homes team made a huge effort to finish the new model that is over 4,000 square feet. The winding paver driveway was lined with holiday lights in the oak hammock overhead setting the stage for a memorable opening night for Emerald’s showcase model home.


Asolo Rep Starry Night Dinner The ForestFurniture in the large gathering room had no sooner been arranged by decorators when it was replaced with tables of eight to accommodate guests for the Starry Night. Others were seated in the formal dining room. Morton’s team used the large gourmet kitchen and island to stage the lavish food and beverage service. Guests included sponsors, patrons of the Asolo Rep and others who purchased $250 tickets to attend this benefit for Asolo Repertory Theatre. The festivities ended with a drawing for one guest to host their own private party for eight in the Florencia. Winner Cheryl MacLauchlan will have her own party catered by Morton’s compliments of event sponsors Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, Emerald Homes and The Forest.

The Florencia model opens to the public in early January. Watch The Forest News for the announcement of the Grand Opening.
