I can’t lie. When I got the email from Mr. Gorgeous asking if LoCoFlo would be willing to provide a bouquet for the winner of the Baltimore Beauty Pageant, I jumped at the chance. I mean…how can you say NO to Mr Gorgeous!
If you’re not familiar with Trixie Little (and Monkey) and Mr. Gorgeous, you are missing out on one of the true gems of Baltimore!! Trixie Little and her husband Monkey are “an acrobatic burlesque super duo” that has been entertaining Charm City (and the world) for the past 10 years. Mr. Gorgeous, (aka Eric Gorsuch) is a 6ft 5 inch burlesque/circus performer extraordinaire that famously partners with Trixie and Monkey in Baltimore best holiday show: the HOLIDAY SPECTAC-U-THON at the Creative Alliance.
So you can see why I was so excited to meet Mr. Gorgeous and have him use our flowers in the pageant! Irene made a spectacular bouquet for the winner including all sorts of local goodies…including “hairy balls”. (what pageant would be complete without them!)
The pageant, hosted by Trixie and Mr. Gorgeous at the Otto Bar featured five beautiful, burlesque “contestants” including one of our 2014 brides “Ruby Rockafella”. While she didn’t win, Ruby Rockafella looked fabulous!
Way to go Baltimore! Another reason we LOVE you!
