Katie Holmes threw her husband Tom Cruise a surprise birthday party Katie Holmes gave her husband Tom Cruise the gift of good old-fashioned elbow grease for his birthday -- by coordinating a surprise party for the action star all on her own.

On Sunday, for Cruise's 49th birthday, Holmes whipped up a private shindig at Miami Beach's SoHo House where 40 friends and family members toasted him. 

At the top of the guest list was little Suri, Cruise and Holmes' well-dressed daughter, and Isabella and Connor -- Cruise's kids from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.  

Italian-inspired dishes featuring shrimp and pasta were served before a chocolate birthday cake, according to People. Holmes oversaw planning from soup to nuts, the report says, even personally accepting RSVPs

Cruise is currently filming Adam Shankman's big screen adaptation of "Rock of Ages."
