For outdoor lover Catherine, a garden-themed gathering for her 5th birthday seemed like the perfect event to show off her green thumb. Thanks to party planner extraordinaire Bunnie Hilliard from Bunnie Hilliard and Co., the little gardeners had a ball planting seeds and celebrating the outdoors. Click through the slideshow to get a glimpse of the beautiful party.

To plant the seed for the perfect party, Bunnie found these adorably green invites on Etsy (here's a similar style; Bunnie's are now sold out). Customize them with the details of your celebration and the little guests will be anxiously awaiting the day.

What’s your favorite way to celebrate a birthday outdoors?
