Suri's fancy tea party

The tradition for runners the day before a big race is to have a pasta dinner. But last Saturday, marathoner Katie Holmes was focused on throwing a tea party for her 18-month-old daughter Suri. Holmes and husband Tom Cruise held the party inside the Carlyle Hotel's Bemelman's Bar, which is decorated with artwork from the Madeline series of children's books. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., about 10 kids and 15 adults enjoyed mini burgers, chicken fingers, mac and cheese, french fries, cookies, and strawberries, and danced to kids' songs played on the piano. "Suri and her friends had a Madeline tea," an observer said, and she was "running around and dancing and playing with friends."
