About The Author

Jordan Jones is the Founder and CEO of Packed Party, a woman-owned lifestyle gifting company.

Jones founded the business at the age of 23 after moving to San Francisco for a job in the Silicon Valley startup scene, soon realizing it wasn't for her. She dreamed one night that she threw herself a pity party -- and with that, the idea for Packed Party was born. She started selling packages filled with supplies for a party of one.

Jones returned to her home state of Texas and set up Packed Party’s headquarters in Austin. Over the years, Jones has scaled the brand with current retail partners including Whole Foods, David’s Bridal, Neiman Marcus, Paper Source and Walmart.  The brand’s product assortment is designed in-house and features a variety of vibrant, whimsical lifestyle products that make life a party, including accessories, bags, drinkware, homewares, paper party supplies and more.

Jones has received numerous industry accolades: named one of Forbes 30 Under 30, serving on the Mastercard Women’s Business Advisory Council, and named Austin Woman “Woman To Watch”. Packed Party has been celebrated in the media across outlets including Business Insider, Fast Company, InStyle, Real Simple and is loved amongst celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Chrissy Teigen.
