Suri Cruise celebrates fifth birthday with lavish tea party

Most children are happy with an ice-cream cake and some party pies, but Suri Cruise celebrated her fifth birthday with a lavish tea party at her family's Beverly Hills mansion on Sunday.

Suri donned a frilly pink dress and turquoise sunglasses for the bash, which was hosted by her parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

The birthday girl sat at the head of the table, flanked by her adopted siblings Connor, 18, and Isabella, 16, and looked thrilled as she opened a seemingly endless stream of gifts.

But the biggest present Suri received was not wrapped up with shiny paper and ribbons — it was $5 million reportedly deposited into her trust fund by her father Tom. The generous contribution is rumoured to take the total balance of Suri's bank account to more than $10 million.

Katie revealed plans for Suri's birthday two weeks ago. She said she was planning the tea party because it was "girly".

"I kind of like to girl it up," Katie told Ryan Seacrest's radio show. "This is my favourite day of the year. She wants a pinata and her girlfriends to come over [to go] swimming. We're gonna make a cake together."

Suri is renowned for being one of Hollywood's most spoiled children. She has a designer wardrobe most grown women would be jealous of, including several $600 dresses and $850 handbags. She also controversially loves wearing high heels and make-up.

Your say: Do you think Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes spoil Suri?
