Using decorative plates or mirrors with your candle displays is a great way to create a unique look. Placing charger plates underneath a group of candles with an accent item helps to tie the display together. In addition to completing a decorative look, mirrors and decorative charger plates help protect table surfaces from heat damage. When jar candles, votive candles, and, candle tins are near empty the bottom of the containers can get hot. It is safe practice to always burn candles on a heat resistant surface.
