A Classic Party Rental Company opened its doors in 1989. The philosophy at A Classic is to provide Indianapolis and surrounding communities with a one-stop shop for party and special occasion goods. The founders of A Classic believed that people wanted to use the best silver, china, linens, and props for their once-in-a-lifetime events but didn’t want to purchase these items. Thus A Classic was born.
