Afternoon baby shower honors Danielle N. Beslin
The home of Mark and Reneé Beslin in Rayne was the setting on Saturday, April 18, for a baby shower held in honor of Mrs. Anthony Beslin, the former Danielle Nave of Rayne.
Maternal grandparents-to-be are Blane and Jennifer Nave of Youngsville and Pam and Rod Walgreen of Ellis Kansas.
Paternal grandparents-to-be are Matt and Chris Beslin of Rayne.

Guests were greeted at the Beslin home with a blue color theme with a blue tablecloth and plates. Napkins were blue and green and featured a baby boy in a pea pod using the same color scheme as the baby’s nusery. Two crystal vases filled with white roses and greenery were noted in the dining room on the dining table. Fresh flowers were placed throughout the living room, dining room and kitchen.
Guests were served a variety of fingerfoods, beverages and sweets, along with a special shower cake, a strawberry confection with white icing and topped with a miniature blue baby carriage.
Approximately 50 guests were in attendance from Rayne and the surrounding Acadiana area.
Special guests in attendance were the new family addition’s great-grandmothers-to-be, Claire Beslin and Joyce Higginbotham.
The new addition, the couple’s first, is expected to arrive June 29, 2009.
