What is a 21 Dinner?

The 21 dinner is a special tradition where a party is organized to celebrate someone’s 21st birthday. It revolves entirely around the person reaching this milestone and provides an opportunity to gather friends and family for an unforgettable evening. During the 21 dinner, much attention is often given to the party’s theme, table decorations, and, of course, the most important element: the menu.

One of the highlights of the 21 dinner is the dessert. We offer countless recipes and products to create a spectacular and delicious dessert that completes the evening. Whether it’s a beautifully decorated cake, a delightful chocolate fountain, or an extensive dessert buffet, FunCakes has all the essentials to make the dessert of the evening unforgettable.

We will guide you step by step on how to organize your own 21 dinner!

Step 1

Choose a theme

To make the evening extra special, a theme is often associated with the dinner. This theme can be incorporated into the invitations, menu cards, decorations, and dress code! We already have numerous ideas ourselves, and we would love to share them with you. Below you will find 10 theme ideas for your 21 dinner.

Step 2

Create and send the invitation

Once you have chosen a theme and set a date, it’s time for your invitation! It is a tradition not to send a “regular” message, but often actual invitations are sent. Whether it’s through mail or as a photo through WhatsApp, that’s entirely up to you. But make it a fun invitation. Include the date, theme, and any other necessary information on the invitation and send it to your friends and/or family.

Step 3

Set up the table decoration

Besides desserts, we also love dressing up the table when organizing a 21 dinner. From beautiful plates, napkins, glasses, flowers to other decorations that perfectly match your theme. We love going all out! Below, we have gathered some inspiration for you. So you need some additional inspiration? Check out Pinterest or TikTok. There you will find plenty of creative and helpful table and theme ideas!

Step 4

Create your own menu

The party is about the birthday person and, of course, the food! Design a menu that suits the birthday person or the theme! Will you have multiple courses, a buffet-style setup, a BBQ, or perhaps tapas? Anything is possible! Don’t forget to include a tasty drink that fits with the meal and, most importantly… the dessert! We’ll come back to that in a moment. Once you’ve made your choice, it’s time to showcase it on your menu card. Design the menu card in the style of the theme and let your creativity shine.

Step 5

Make your dessert with FunCakes!

As we mentioned before, the dessert is, for us, the most important aspect when organizing a 21 dinner. From cupcakes to a cake to brownies, we have everything to make the dessert unforgettable. So, if you still need dessert inspiration for your 21 dinner, keep reading.
