Some safety considerations and rules

There are some considerations and rules that you need to follow. If you decide to put candles in glasses, vases, or glass containers, you should make sure that they are fireproof. You wouldn’t want to ruin your magnificent dinner because the glass contained bursts from the high temperature. And this can lead not only to a spoiled mood but also to injuries. Avoid using candles near open windows, fans, in drafts, or in the wind. A sudden stream of air can throw flames on nearby objects. Everyone knows what the result is going to be. When decorating the table with candles do not forget that they should be placed in such a way that they do not disturb the guests while eating and conversing with each other. After the party, be careful to take the candles out of the candlesticks. It is possible for wax drippings to get into the container; when lit on fire, they ignite exactly the same as the candle itself.
