WASHINGTON, Sept. 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfect Settings, LLC, one of the largest party rental companies on the east coast announces that it has acquired Classic Tents, Inc. of Silver Spring, Maryland.

Classic Tents is one of the oldest and most respected tent companies in the Washington, D.C. area. For more than twenty-five years, it has provided innovative outdoor equipment for a wide range of high-profile clients in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area as well as in Baltimore, Maryland, Middleburg, and Richmond Virginia, and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It has also supplied tenting for a number of major sporting events and area universities.

"When the opportunity arose for us to become part of Perfect Settings, I didn't hesitate," says Terry Macfarlane, owner of Classic. "It's great for us and great for our customers. We can now offer much more than outdoor equipment."

Like Perfect Settings, Classic has built its reputation by offering quality rentals, backed by superior service, to area caterers, event planners, corporations, government agencies, and private individuals.

"For Perfect Settings, it's a natural extension of what we do," notes Peter Grazzini, managing member of the company. "We pride ourselves on offering high-quality party rentals, backed by excellent service from both our sales and warehouse teams. With Classic becoming part of our company, we'll be able to offer one-stop shopping for all our clients' needs."

Founded in 1998, Perfect Settings has earned a reputation as one of the top party rental companies on the east coast. Its linen and table settings have graced the Washington area's most prominent venues—embassies, museums, federal buildings, and special event sites. In addition, the company is frequently called upon to provide linens and equipment for functions as far away as Massachusetts and California and all points in between.

Classic Tents' office and warehouse will close and consolidate its operations and staff to Perfect Settings' 115,000 square foot facility in Landover, Maryland. Macfarlane will head the new tent division of Perfect Settings.
