About Our Founder

Kori Jones knows how to pull things together

A creative and detail-driven culinary artist with a knack for organizing casual but elegant gatherings, Kori is a natural entertainer. Whenever she hosts a party in her own home or brings family and friends together for a holiday meal, the focal point of her table is a grazing platter filled with what can be best described as exquisite snacks—a plentiful mix of local produce sourced from Los Angeles farmers markets, imported cheeses, charcuterie, healthy dips, rustic crackers, chocolate-dipped fruit. Inevitably, her guests ask, ‘Will you  please  come to my house and do this for me?’ And that’s how an amateur foodie turned pro, and  Simple Life Things  came to be.

Arranged on vintage European bread boards, or sustainable balsa wood disposables, a  Simple Life Things  platter is as delicious as it is beautiful. Kori can customize the selections to your liking, offering vegetarian, vegan, nut-free and child-friendly options, and will deliver the artfully arranged trays including wooden serving spoons and forks right to your door. 

Are you interested in a more traditional meal? Kori can do that, too, and would happily create a tasteful, inventive and healthy drop-off meal for your next low-stress dinner party. Do you want to build your own platter? She’s curated a collection of vintage and hand-crafted boards available for purchase and hosts private DIY classes for small groups. 

Kori understands that great food brings people together and that entertaining should be joyful and easy. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
