Welcome. This week at Viva we're in a party mood as we countdown to the festive season.
Do join us. The cocktails are at the bar. Or would you prefer a glass of bubbles, handpicked by our wine editor Jo Burzynska? Or, try the canapes.
Recipe editor Angela Casley put them together. So delicious.
We have some fabulous fashion, put together by stylist Dan Ahwa. Plus we talk to leading artist Fiona Pardington and vintage jewellery collector Constance Cummings.
