“Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death“- Auntie Mame
The Story Of Auntie Mame
Stuck in Quarantine missing her friends, parties, events and sports gatherings, this caterer-florist-bartender-do-it-all extraordinaire had a brilliant thought! Let’s bring the party to the people! Mame will bring the fun to you, wherever you are! We are a mobile venue.
My grandmother, J. Kelly, gave me the nickname “Mame” when I was a little girl. I reminded her of the character Auntie Mame, played by Rosalind Russell in the 1958 film “Auntie Mame”. I took the name with pride, as we both are adventurous and free-spirited, with a taste for the finer things in life. We’re also both masters in versatility and making it work, regardless of circumstance. You could also say we’re both known for taking things over the top. But why not?!
I’m the daughter of a famous race car mechanic, and an Audrey Hepburn-like mother of elegance and grace, and have a knack for all things vintage and original. Which is what led me on this adventure.
Tucked away in picturesque Stillwater, MN, this perfect gem, a 1958 Shasta Airflyte, stood gleaming in the sun, waiting for me to breathe new life back into her. She needed it just as much as I do, and we are bringing life back to people during a time of such uncertainty.
I personally have over 30 years experience in the entertainment and service industries, and have also had years of experience creating beautiful floral arrangements for a variety of events. I’ve also seen almost every type of party imaginable, and based on that experience, I know how to throw a GREAT one!
We are here to bring an entertaining venue to YOU! Have Auntie Mame over for your next outdoor event. We offer a multitude of options and packages. With the versatility of a camper, and my experience and expertise, we can pretty much bring any vision to life. Let Auntie Mame provide the “WOW” factor for your next event!
“Live Live Live!” -Auntie Mame
Looking for something unique for your next kids’ party, wedding, shower, reunion, or neighborhood block party? Auntie Mame is a 1958 Shasta Airflyte Camper that’s been remodeled and transformed into a mobile event venue. Decorated with 1950’s swag, the Airflyte comes complete with a service window perfect for serving craft cocktails, scooping ice cream, or handing out 5K registration packets...the options are only limited by your imagination!
Hello, I’m Amy Umbdenstock, and many say I’m a ‘jack of all trades’; I’m a mom, a cook, a host, a bartender, a coach, a kick-boxing instructor, a florist, and a planner...and on top of all that, I love to throw amazing parties! The main reason I restored Auntie Mame was to create a mobile venue that will allow me to bring your party to you! I’ve been a caterer and party planner for more than 15 years and have always found it frustrating when a venue requires you to choose from a “set list” of caterers, or overcharges you for spirits that are bundled into a “set package” that usually includes items or options you’re not interested in. Not with Auntie Mame…my goal is to offer as little or as much as you need to make your event exactly what YOU want it to be!
Along with catering, I’ve been a florist for more than 30 years, so if full service is what you need I can offer breathtaking floral bouquets, centerpieces, arches, and hair crowns to make your event truly special! I also have a staff of bartenders and servers to accommodate larger gatherings.
** I want to thank Amy and Auntie Mame’s for making my backyard BBQ a hit! I consider myself an aspiring grill master so, although I wanted to have my friends over to show off my skills at the grill, I didn’t want to have to worry about the rest of the meal, party set up, keeping the platters and coolers full, or clean up! That’s where Auntie Mame’s came in; Amy brought some perfect sides for a BBQ, set up an amazing buffet line, prepared the meats for the chafer, made sure the food and drinks continued flowing, and broke everything down after all my guests were full! I also provided the drinks, Auntie Mame’s bartender‘s packed up what was leftover for me to keep for my next party!
Having Auntie Mame’s to help, allowed me to enjoy what I love WITHOUT needing to worry if my guests were being taken care of. My friends haven’t stopped talking about the party and I continue to see photos from the Airflyte photo lounge popping up online! I’m already being asked when my next cookout will be and, although nothing has been scheduled yet, I know I’ll be checking with Amy to make sure Auntie Mame’s is available before sending out invitations!
