There’s no better time of year to get everyone together for great food and wine. But, let’s face it: Hosting at the holidays can be fraught with stress. Enter Bandit, your headquarters for low-key holiday entertaining. We know how to keep it casual amid the shopping and the crowds and the endless loop of Let it Snow. Kick back with us and learn how to have fun at your own party this season.

The Wine: Think Inside the Box

Nothing says December like wall-to-wall guests scrambling for a beverage and a spot under the mistletoe. When you’re expecting a large group, keep your sanity with our eco-smart, ultra-convenient and great quality Tetra Paks. Choose your favorites— Bandit Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay tend to be crowd pleasers—and set up a self-serve station with festive cups. Thanks to a fool-proof screw-cap closure, your guests won’t have to wrestle with a cork to get a sip of great wine—and you can actually mingle at your own shin-dig.

The Food: Simple and Chic

When it comes to the food, keep it casual. This is no time for a seated, four-course meal. Let someone else cook Christmas dinner! Your party is all about relaxing after work and catching up with friends, and your menu should reflect that. Think simple, one-bite apps that guests can nibble while they work the room with a glass of Bandit wine in hand. We’re talking bacon-wrapped dates, beef sliders and mini mushroom tarts. ‘Tis the season for store-bought, pre-cooked hors d’oeuvres that look homemade.

Happy Holidays!
The Bandit Crew
