Welcome to Champagne Ranch, the Gathering Place for Trailblazing Women (and boys are welcome, too.) KRISTIE & COMPANY, SHE IS WHISKEY IN A TEACUP and CHAMPAGNE RANCH are headquartered in this inspired venue. It is a state of mind. It's hard to define, but we have a LOT of words to describe it. It's an ambition-drenched, Chippy/Shabby Boardroom, Barntique, Boujee Venue & B+B where the only business at hand is sipping Whiskey out of Teacups, Gussying Up for Events and engaging in Southern Girl Boss chatter about riding out at Sunset in sequin-coated chaps with All Guns Blazin'.
We're Marie Antoinette meets Annie Get Your Gun. We're Old West Paris. We're Gun-Smoked. We're Darling Desperados. We're Posh Pariahs. We're Top Knots & Double Shots. We're FrouFrou Fraulines.

We’re Grit & Grace meets Pearls & Lace.
Most who know about all of this history think of us as a Power Brand (their words, not ours - until now). That may sound a smidge pompous, but we finally just submitted to the notion and decided to own it. We are constantly pushing the creative envelope on branding, graphic design, retail, events and experiences, and trailblazing with ideas that we think will support other women in business. Forget thinking outside the proverbial box. We crush the box and toss it into the burn pile - which just so happens to be the firepit-in-the-round in our backyard where we sit and brainstorm with Champagne & S'Mores.
We toss the phrase "She is Whiskey in a Teacup" around like glitter. Not only does it literally define us, it's our Brand Mantra. The walls of Champagne Ranch are wallpapered in this concept. She is Whiskey in a Teacup is a dare to be extraordinary; to identify the unique in everything, and it not only defines our Branding Agency, it is the model that drives our Barntique, B+B and Boujee Venue. It's a lifestyle. We've always said that Branding is a State of Mind, and the Best Brands create lifestyles that their customers want to live and breathe in. So, that is what we're doing here.
Because Kristie has made a career of building brands and propping up women in business, it's befitting that she would parlay that into her Boujee French Farmhouse-turned-Champagne Ranch (and...here's a fun fact...she used to live here). We’re Southern Girl Bosses running our own Wild West Design, Home, Event & Retail Show. So, welcome to Champagne Ranch. Not-so-simply put, it's your place to SIP, SHOP, SLEEP OVER, STAY INSPIRED, AND SAY I DO.
Sounds delicious, doesn't it? How did all of this magical mayhem start, you ask? This East Texas Experience has quite the backstory. READ ABOUT IT HERE
