Colleen's journey into the world of event planning was deeply influenced by her upbringing in the close-knit community of Niantic, CT. She inherited her passion for entertaining from her mother, Eileen Wilson, who had a remarkable knack for creating an atmosphere of warmth and inclusivity, where everyone felt like family – whether they were friends or even strangers. This foundation of hospitality, love, and connection shaped Colleen's aspirations and set her on a path to making others feel cherished through the art of celebration.
