Alfredo Flores posted a video on his Instagram account of the star-studded shindig, in which Dobrev is adorably wearing a “Most Frequently Used” emoji poster around her head, while trying to blow out her candles.

“It was a great birthday,” a source tells E! News. “Nina was so happy so many of her close friends turned out. It was a big party.”

Guests included boyfriend Austin Stowell, former “TVD” co-star Kat Graham, Jessica Szohr, Eli Mizrahi and Nick Jonas. Stowell dressed up like a panda emoji, while Dobrev went as the heart-eyed cat.

“Austin and Nina were really cute together and you can tell how much they care about each other,” the source says.

Stowell posted on his Instagram account earlier that day a sweet birthday post to Dobrev, writing “I think the Dos Equis guy said it best: “I don’t always post pictures, but when I do, it’s of a unicorn.” Happy birthday to my favorite little Yankee fan… 🍰 🎉 🎁 🍾 😘.”
