About Over The Moon Party Shop

Over the Moon Party Shop in Pevensey Bay, nr Eastbourne, East Sussex

Over the Moon Party Shop is located in the coastal town of Pevensey Bay, just outside Eastbourne, in East Sussex.

The shop began as an independent family run business, with the focus on customer care and good service.

The story so far...2014

Back in the dim distant past of December 2014, when Loom Bands were popular and One Direction still had 5 members, Daina Martin had a vision. It was time to leave her East Berkshire home and her beloved job in a friend's party shop and strike out on her own.

With husband Paul in tow, they packed up their belongings, hitched up their caravan, and headed down to Pevensey Bay in sunny East Sussex.

After an exhaustive search of exactly one commercial premises (it was perfect!), the Over the Moon dream started to become reality...


By February they had taken possession; this was immediately followed by much coercion and pressganging of friends and relatives into two months of hard graft in preparation for opening.

Tired, emotional, and covered in dust, the happy entrepreneurs threw the doors open to the public for the first time that Easter weekend.

And so the rollercoaster began. Soon a steady flow of happy customers began to pass through the door, many giving glowing testimony to Daina's kindness, efficiency, artistic talents, and general desire to 'go the extra mile' to make everyone's party special.

It was these kind references that led, in December, to Over the Moon Party Shop being first nominated for and then winning the Sovereign FM Best New Business of 2015 award!


With a new opportunity on the horizon, and after a lot of soul-searching, Daina decided to sell the business.

In July, Hazel Lee took over as the proud new owner of Over the Moon Party Shop, and is now in charge of all your party needs!
