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.

Each of Catherine's guests were given a mini flower pot for the party's main activity...planting, of course! The kids loved digging in and planting their very own mini strawberry plants.
