Candles take on a spooky effect when set against spider webs and other Halloween decorations.

Tips for using Halloween Party Decoration Candles Safely

Halloween Candle Safety

If your party involves children, or if you want to make sure your flames are "safe", consider using flameless candles in your pumpkins.

You can also use flameless tealight candles. These are usually battery operated and can easily be found online.

If you do use real candles, think safety.

You’ll want to keep them in an area where you can keep an eye on them at all times.

You’ll also want to position the candles so that they won’t get knocked over – so plan to put them in a sturdy place, away from the dance floor or where guests might bump into them.

Another consideration is whether or not they will be near something that is flammable. For example, don't sit it near a hay bale!

Bottom line, plan carefully with your candle placement, or go the flameless candle route to make sure you're safe.

Have a safe Halloween!

Halloween Pet Safety

While we are on the subject of candle safety, another reason to use flameless candles is to keep your pets safe! Never allow your pet to be unattended around a flame!

If you are having a party, it is a good idea to put pets away in a safe place for the evening. This keeps your pet feeling safe and secure, and also prevents any accidents or crisis with a stressed pet.
