Instead of adorning dinner tables with flower arrangements, especially if you're serving supper in your bloom-filled garden, why not fill glass containers with exotic peacock plumes, picked up inexpensively in a Chinatown shop, instead?

All this week, Toronto's Luminato festival has been showcasing One Thousand and One Nights, the pan-Arab/Asian theatre spectacle. Think of your soirée as the one thousand and second. - Michael Tong
