A pink and white balloon display greeted 100 ladies (and a few men) attired in pink to celebrate the upcoming arrival of baby girl Holland Rose Gentry. The baby shower, Tickled Pink, for TV reality star Erica Rose, was held at the home of Jack and Barbra Markman. Holland is a combination of Erica’s late aunt’s name, Holly, and the homeland of her Dutch fiancé, attorney Galen Gentry. Nancy Reichek and Brittany Klingler kept track of the 25 hostesses and RSVPs, Nancy Marcus Golden, Abby Lestin and Lily Paxon helped with décor, candy bar and the guest list, and Ella Hamburger brought her homemade babka. Picos catered in the back yard while a buffet of Erica’s favorites foods was inside. A photo backdrop and photographer kept everyone smiling. Erica’s mom, Cindi Rose, did silhouettes with a pink frame as a party favor. Dad Dr. Franklin Rose watched as gifts were opened. Erica and Galen live in California.
