about us

hi! we are lacey and genevieve, two friends from baltimore, maryland. we grew up across the street from one another on dunkirk road, where we spent our summers planning birthday parties at the neighborhood pool, most notably the flamingo party of '95, complete with every flamingo-related favor and decoration oriental trading had to offer.

since then, we went away to college and got our marketing degrees from the university of maryland (go terps!), moved back to baltimore, and entered the 9-5 world, but we still found ourselves loving to come up with fun and unique party ideas. our love of design really kicked into high gear over the past two years after we both got engaged. as brides in our own weddings and MOH's in each other's weddings, we were having trouble finding exactly what we wanted for bridal shower invitations, bachelorette party favors, wedding items, the list goes on... so we decided to make our own. and that's how dunkirk designs was born!
