Suri's $100,000 Birthday Party

Suri's $100,000 Birthday Party

The birthday party held for Suri Cruise‘s second birthday cost a whopping $100,000!

The catering bill for the two parties cost Tom more than $45,000, reveals the insider, who adds that Tom asked his friend, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, to cater the events, reports In Touch.

Tom reportedly filled their Hollywood Hills home with more than $17,000 worth of fresh flowers.

An insider also says that the Cruises spent almost $5,000 on cakes.

“They’re very specific about what they like,” said Jane Lockhart, whose Sweet Lady Jane Bakery in West Hollywood made the cakes. “They wanted [Suri's] cake to look simple and childlike so they designed it themselves, which was kind of interesting. They brought in photos they had seen of butterflies and other cakes.”

    I don’t think that Suri is cross-eyed, I think that she was looking up at something that certainly had her excited….looks like almost hypnotized. She is a cutie even if her dad is kinda out there. Saw a picture of the b’day cake, it was very cute, but not $5,000.00 worth of cute. My feelings are that if this was not a “show boating” event, the Cruises would have made sure to use caterers and a bakery that would keep quiet. I am sure that they are out there!! This was for fanfare!!

  • Bob

    Holy cow, her eyes are like 3 inches apart, and she’s just a kid!


    She’s so adorable and this is the first bad photo I’ve seen of her!

    Let’s see….her second birthday costs as a “real celebrity baby” was only $100,000 but the “uncelebrity baby” known as Dannielynn was given that ridiculous million dollar party. I guess her sperm daddy had to squeeze as much money as he could out of the public before the truth becomes apparent as she matures.

  • ymca

    Adorable baby and family but I want real pics and real news.

  • American

    Why stop there #12? They don;t need a mansion, all those cars or a private jet? No celebrity does actually but I bet you don’t spout this self-righteous crap to other celebrities. I bet you don’t spend all your time feeding the homeless?

    Not only that, if they went the Brangelina route you’d just say it was all for PR. It’s a catch-22. You’re absolutely right, #24

  • cyndi

    Spend $100,000 on a birthday party but by all means do not give her penicillan if she is sick because of the whole scientology thing. It also makes me mad that they spend $17,000 on flowers that die in a few days and there are starving children that would love to have $1 bowl of rice for dinner. Shame on them for being so glutenous.

  • Concerned mom

    I think that figure is highly exagerated. And altho I think TC could do more charitable work with his money, at the end of the day, he earned it and it is his to spend as lavishly or as carelessly as he wishes. Although the rich people have more funds to work with, we all could probably give more than we do to help those that have less. I mean if you are able to go out and buy a Lexus car, for instance, someone will probably think the same about you–that you could give more to the needy.

  • Yuck

    what a waste of money on a baby robot.

  • ME

    I think I noticed the golddigger’s entire family there. They seem really impressed with Tom’s $$$. You think they came all the way from the East coast hoping to get a little something themselves? I’m sure Tom had to pay for the flight to get them all there. Money sure impresses some people.

  • arbuckle

    I read somewhere that they were going to have a Cirque de Soleil type of party with a Cinderella theme and that it was going to cost a million $. So I was a bit surprised that it only cost $100,000.
    Just goes to show you can’t believe everything thing you read hey! LOL!

    $100,000 is lunch money for the Cruises.

  • just sayin’

    arbuckle #61 – Just wanted to correct something in your last statement.

    Instead of “$100,000 is lunch money for the Cruises”, wouldn’t it be more accurate to say $100,000 is lunch money for Tom Cruise. I think this is important because:

    Katie is only a golddigger, she has contributed nothing financially to the “relationship”. She’s probably never earned $100,000 over her entire lifetime. Besides, she’s not even a Cruise. Connor will make more money in his first movie than all of KH’s teeny bopper TV show and miniscule movie parts.

  • NikJonass

    Ha ha She’s Cute :D
    But Still, Why would they spend That much Money On a birthday!
    I cant even Remember my 1st B-day. & it was like what, 13 Yrs. ago ha ha.

  • Miapocca

    she is cross eyed like anna nicole baby…can be correcrted by usrgey if not already corrected by now…

  • Miapocca

    Ok…lavish money so the children haveno perception of reality or the value of he might FALLING dollar that is reminiscent of tommy’s life

    Brangelina does not live contraire private flying lessons and a home in every corner of the globe is not cheap

    JLO is just HO who got smart enough to use her hard working p-ss-y to mak e some dollars..she is obscene in her spending and we should expect no more than a million bucks on the first birthday party..not to mention bling bling for them ..I want to see how Mark anthony explians this to his other kids…

    Tommy is has been, the reason for all the publicity.and turning a 2 yr olds party into a public spectacle…he just raiisng the next sick paris hilton…suri rebellion will magnify her paris traits.

    Pathetic fools..all the money and just sheer emptiness, so have to fkae thier own publicity

  • tom c

    Katie is going to make Tom poor at this rate. All she does is spend his money. Doesn’t she know how to contribute to society or help someone in need?
    Can we say S-H-A-L-L-O-W anyone?

  • arbuckle

    # 62 just sayin’

    You are absolutely right….$100,000 is lunch money for Tom Cruise.

    And I totally agree with you…Katie is just a gold-digger. She is so shallow. She is just a joke really….albeit a rich joke…courtesy of Tom’s money.

  • just sayin’

    Gotta post this link….look at the dumb looking flower halos on everybody’s head. Also, Tom and KH are wearing out the “let’s make everybody think we are in love” fakiness. While they are fake kissing in that photo, look how everyone is just standing there….they must be thinking WTF? Does Tom’s mom, sisters, Connor, or KH’s parents, sisters, etc. not ever say anything about this bullshit kissing and hangin on each other? Probably not because they all think Tom is the Messiah.

  • legs

    i agree, she looked possesed in the photo but totally adorable.

    is tom & katie trying to prove to whole world that suri’s the best celebrity child? i mean, it’s too much expensive for a 2 year old birthday party. but anyway, it’s their money so they can spend it whenever they want.

  • candy

    WHY some people expect others to donate their money to charities? It’s their money they can do whatever they want. even though donation is a good thing to do.

  • Sue

    I agree with Shorty, CK and Erin.

  • Terri

    I am sorry but what are they teaching this child and what are they showing their older children. That Suri is all that matters and too bad you are here. I have never meant a two year old who needs that kind of a party, They could of had a very nice family party for Suri and the donated the rest of the money to a children’s charity in her name. I dont think you will ever hear of this kind of expense with all the Jolie Pitt Kids. I can’;t believe I would ever say this but Tom needs to learn from the Joie-Pitt clan, they spend on their kids but also show them tha they are not the most important person in the world. Tom needs to remember where he came from and start to teach his kids some realistic values, it looks like right now they are so focused on image

  • Mika

    “…I am sorry but what are they teaching this child and what are they showing their older children. That Suri is all that matters and too bad you are here…”
    I totally agree with you Terri, and I’m surprised that no one else has mentioned something about, you know the “other” two who we don’t ever hear almost anything about.
    Makes me wonder if Cruise ever spent $100,000 on his other children *together* in their whole lifetime, let alone 100k on a friggin toddler….allegedly (rolls eyes).

  • lila

    Adorable kid. Silly parents.

  • Alison

    What an insane amount of money to spend on a child’s birthday party. I guess it is better to spend it on Suri’s party than to give it to the cash cow that is the Church of Scientology. I am sure plenty of charities out there could have used it wisely…

  • American

    She’s not a gold digger and the have a right to spend their money as they please. They look like they’re doing a fine job raising their kids and support charities all the time. Moreso than what you self-righteous hypocrites like #72 are doing.

  • solaris

    I think it is inappropriate to have a party which cost a lot of money, when somewhere in the neighbourhood people are hungry (I am talking about HAITI = USA neighbourhood).

    All charity that they did is blown in the wind because of it. Because it shows clearly that actually they give a *** about what happens in the world if it comes to what they want/need. Their daughter is only 2 years old, and they already spent that much money. What for? What the sense of it? I simply do not understand.

    Yes, it is their money. They can do what they want with it. But excuse me, they still live on the earth, don’t they? They can not simply ignore the facts surround them, that people are dying, every day. Babies are dying because of hunger. At least, they can show a little bit compassion, and a little bit love. Or their cult doesn’t teach that?

  • American

    Oh brother…

    What do you do for the starving children in Africa, #77? Do you blast any other celebrities for frivolous purchases? Would you devote yourself to philanthropy if you had all that money?

    The answer to all three is No. Selfrighteous hypocrite…

  • solaris

    I do not have so much money, but at least I try to give some pennies of mine to children in my neighbourhood. I can not do much about the children of Africa or any where else, but I do this and that to the children in MY Neighbourhood.

    I do not blast anybody good deed, by the way. I welcome any body who’s willing to do any good thing.
    But you know what, I always believe your real intentions will be shown when the time comes to what you will do to yourself. And excuse me, American, I simply can not understand the vast party for 2 years old! It simply doesn’t make any sense to me.

    You asked questions, and you answered them yourself. Thank you for being me. Because I want to be being you, so I can change “your” point of view from time to time.

  • http://comingsoon Hollywood1Hugefan

    wo0o0oo0oo0w she looks soooooooooo Cute she’s very lucky to be tom’s baby luv her*_*

  • Aquarius

    I am waiting to see how TC is going to celebrate Bella’s sweet 16.
    If he lavishes $100K on his “real” daughter, what fraction of this amount of money will he spend on Bella’s sweet 16? And please note, it is HIS money. And I totally agree with “American”, KH is not a gold digger, she’s a parasite. She lives on and spends TC’s money, yet cultivates no sense of fashion nor style. She’s totally shallow.

  • regina

    gosh, so many hungry people, and they spend so much with a stupid birthday of a 2 yr old who will never remember this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • American

    Guess what, #79. The Cruises help out with charitiies ALL THE TIME. But people usually convienietly forget or just say that they’re doing it for PR.

    No celebrity needs a huge mansion or multiple cars either but they do it anyway. It’s their money and they can spend it as they please.

    Cruise loves all his children equally, #81. Suri Cruise simply gets more media attention because she’s the biological daughter of an ultra famous actor. Unfair but true and not his fault at all. And Holmes isn’t a parasite.

  • Aquarius

    Yeah, right. KH is not a parasite, tell me what she brings to the wealth other than AMEX statements.
    As for TC “loves” his children equally, tell me how much he spent on either “other” children’s 2-year-old b-day party? Nada! Don’t blame you for not knowing for he wasn’t married to a shallow no class parasite like KH.

    And Suri is just the alleged “real” child to TC, but genuine PR stunt for this has been overpriced actor.

  • American

    Holmes has a career and brings her own income even if iot nowhere near her hsuband’s but what does it matter to you if she didn’t? They’re married and Cruise doesn’t seem to mind so why should you?

    His love for his children cannot and should not be measured by how extracagant their birthday pasrties are. You’ve seen him spending time with his other two children and supporting them and that should be enough eveidence.

  • Tammy

    aww how cute

  • Miapocca

    Poor AMERICAN…

    Tom cruise minds a whole lot…

    She signed a prenup
    not to forget he divorced his second wife a mere seconds before their 10th anniversary so she wouldnt get his mullah

    HE DOES MIND..a lot!!

  • American

    He divorced her AFTER the ten year mark

  • me

    They were legally separated and a divorce action was initiated before the ten year mark. The divorce was finalized after the ten year mark.

  • American

    Married December 1990, Filed for Divorce February 2001

  • solaris

    Ah American, American! How I love your naivety! Of course they have the rights to do what ever they want. But you can not simply ignore the fact, that it was a birthday party for 2 years old child. My mark was that it was inappropriate. Especially not now, when THEIR NEIGHBOUR are crying out for hunger!

    It’s just like your neighbour can not afford anything to eat, and you made a huge party for your new born baby. Halloooooooo? Is there something missing here? I mean $ 100.000!!!! It’s more than I ever earned!! Not only that his wife is shopping, shopping, and oh forget, shopping…then may be, just may be, working…..then shopping again, and now…!!

    Charity? Oh ja, we can do that. Do you really believe that Cruise will sweep his charity action under the carpet? Do charity ALL THE TIME?
    Are you really that naive?

    For me, Nicole is away from Cruise. Period. Thank God! And now she’s pregnant. NOT WITH TC! THANK GOD!!!!!!

  • saMMY LEE

    In most pictures I have ever seen of plain-jane Suri, she looks either cross eyed or mentally delayed. If it was just one time I wouldn’t be
    concerned. When I see it multiple times I wonder — Don’t these parents
    ever really look at their child and think that something might be wrong with her. Just because someone is rich , it doesn’t mean that every
    thing is a o k. Just wondering. Is it just me? Has any one else out there
    noticed that look she has?

  • American

    Doing anything frivolous isn’t inappropriate, #91. There’s nothing wrong with that party or nothing wrong with shopping. They’re fee to spend their money as they please and do help charities much of the time. Actually, they donate more than you ever will.

    Suri Cruise is a normal healthy child, #92.

  • Miapocca

    Is American that same other guy who lives on just jared and respond to every two notes on this board on tom..I think his name is Yorick or whatever…American go pour our some naicin and should know by now you are in the minority and your foolish support is just almos admirable for a guy who probably doesnt give a shit about you if he see you at the shitology center

  • Aquarius

    Yeah right, they donate to the charity? which one? COS? C stands for cult.
    Yes, TC and KH do have rights to spend TC’s money anyway he sees fit, but we also have right to question and criticize as well as compare. I can hardly forget that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt gave $8 mil to the charity. They may not sit on such wealth as TC, yet they give a sustancial part to worthy causes.
    ‘ Course, you’re going to say, well TC has the right, whatsoever.
    But I am just saying, you cannot stop people from from comparing, or even judging the class of TC and KH.
    And to me, I don’t think they have any.

    And another thing, I do find Suri look less and less alive. Other people commented before that she does show some typical signs of ASD.
    To me, she looks enormous for an alleged 2 year old.

  • Miapocca

    Yeah but you should probably read nicole story on the divorce…first he has the 10th wedding anniversary then claim they a few months up to the 10 year due to something about their wedding date or other…

    You dont really think a greedy midget liek tom will want to share his money with a mindless HO he bought off the backwoods of Ohio, would you

    I am quite ecstatic to see Nicole Kidman happy and PREGNANT with A MAN!

    Who is Suri ‘s father again and was there ever a legal wedding certificate filed..ahahhaha

  • Aquarius

    Well, let me spell it for you, American.
    I see TC and KH have only bad taste with no class.

  • Aquarius

    Hey, poor poor lonely american, where are you now? Somewhere in the basement? Waiting for your whoppy $86/ month check to come it?

    Just let you know, not only that you cannot stop people from comparing how much money TC gives to the charity against Brangelina’s record, also, people will compare how differently Suri and Violet A. play.
    Check this out:
    This is how “a normal healthy child” play. Not like the photo opp of TC and Suri all dressed up to “play” in the park.

  • sherri

    This is one of the symptoms of the sickness of this society… greedy, ultra-rich celebrities wasting this kind of money while sooooo many people suffer, and we all support it and celebrate it. Hey Tom and Katie: I for one would respect you if you had taken that same money and fed starving children somewhere in this cruel world.

  • http://aol Debbie

    She’s adorable…doll baby I didn’t even pay that much for my home…wow must be nice

  • American

    My name is American #94 and it’s really dumb and hypocritical to attack me for replying to TomKat related items when you do the exact same thing.

    The two were married LA before their Italian nuptials, Cruise is the father and the kid was born on April 18, 2006.

    That’s the thing, #95. You’re no one to judge and what you’re doing is ridiculous and selfrighteous. They can afford the party, have the roght to spend as they please and you yourself aren’t an active supporter of the starving children in Africa or whatever charity you pretend to care so much about and you wouldn’t do the Bragelina thing or even donate to charity in behalf of your child for their birthday if you had the money. I’m also talking to you, #99.

    Suri Cruise is always dressed up so comparing kids to see if they take her out for photo ops is pointless. How exactly does a normal child play?
