Make sure the room is well ventilated and consider about 100 cm of overhead clearance above the candle to be sure that the flame and the heat can rise safely.
To prevent uneven burning, dripping, and even sooting, keep clear of any draughts such as ceiling fans or air conditioning.
Burn candles separately enough to avoid one’s heat melting the other.
