When life hands you lemons … make them the theme of your birthday party!

Sofia Vergara celebrated her 44th birthday in Los Angeles on Sunday with a dinner party complete with family, cake and her own Snapchat filter.

Vergara’s son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara, joked around with the actress in an Instagram video about her age on her big day.

“Happy birthday, Mom,” he told the camera while Vergara’s husband of eight months, Joe Manganiello, gives a thumbs up while chowing down on some treats from the food table. “I can’t believe you’re turning–” before Vergara breaks from her smile to stop him from revealing her age.

“18. She’s turning 18. #HappyVerde,” he captioned the video.

The Modern Family star was also active on Snapchat, sharing many shots of the lemon-themed dinner party and her attempt to blow out the candle on her cake. Paul Reubens even got in on the fun, dancing with Vergara as she poured a glass over the two of them.

Lemons really dominated the event (there was even a limoncello bar) and the fruit was also featured in Vergara’s custom Snapchat filter. Vergara’s son wore a bright yellow lemon costume, and the birthday girl even got snapped wearing the getup, complete with yellow hat.

When not donning the yellow costume, Vergara looked stunning in a two-piece black lace ensemble that showed off her signature curves.

Vergara revealed that the birthday party was a last-minute celebration.

“I thought I was not going to be in town,” she told Extra. “I organized something really fast last week, so it’s just going to be, like, a dinner; it’s not going to be that big or that crazy, it’s just going to be simple, ’cause I thought I really was going to be in New York.”
