Use Tapers

A whiff of fresh air diverts the flame and makes it appear wobbly and unstable. To make your candlelight in a vertical position only, use candle tapers. The tappers not only prevent the flames from getting moved by air, but will also help to protect the surrounding from catching on fire. You can buy dusk candle cradles or similar candle holders to support the tappers without compromising the overall beauty and charm.
