Although long-stem glass hurricane holders are designed primarily to display candles, the wide-mouth vessels offer many more decorative opportunities. Removing the candle and filling the classic accent piece adds colour and texture to a fireplace mantle, your dining room table or a small table. Place accessories around the hurricane candle holder for a complete centrepiece or an attractive still-life display.
