Using Candles; Safety Tips!

Now, it would be terribly irresponsible of me not to include safety here. It has happened, sadly more than once that someones hair, veil, dress or decorative display catches a flame! Be careful and think ahead!

  • If you are going to get crafty and make your own candles, there is some great advice, safety and clean up tips here at the Candle Cauldron. I also really liked their flier with burning and safety suggestions here!
  • The United Kingdom's government website has a page entitled: Fire Kills! Get you attention?

Remember safety always and have a grand event!
Happy Planning!
