If there’s one kind of item that I can always be convinced to splurge on, it’s tableware. A cute set of plates or cups won’t just impress the guests you invite over for dinner parties — it’ll make you happy every time you use it. Heck, every time you look at it. Instead of opting for plain white bowls or clear cups, you can find pieces that reflect your personality and work with your decor. Trust me, as small as it might seem, fun tableware will elevate your entire kitchen.

And it doesn’t get much more stunning than East Fork. The Asheville, North Carolina-based brand offers ceramic dinnerware that’s equal parts functional and beautiful. (It’s no wonder that items like The Mug and Oval Platter have sold out quickly and regularly.) Somehow, the brand always manages to one-up itself, and just in time for summer, it dropped a stunning seasonal hue that’s available for a limited time only.

The Neptune shade is a cerulean blue that’ll breathe new life into your kitchen. Beginning today, you can snag over 10 of the brand’s items in the color — including the Oval Platter, which is back in stock for a limited time. It sold out in minutes last year, so I recommend grabbing it now before it’s gone again. Plus, you’ll get it before entertaining season really kicks off in a few weeks. Once you have this gem in your collection, your food displays will have never looked so good. When you aren’t hosting, you can even use the platter as decor, turning it into an entryway catch-all.

With the Neptune launch also comes a new glaze base from the brand. With its eye-catching sheen, it stands apart from the semi-matte surfaces of East Fork’s other items. Still, that doesn’t mean that Neptune won’t pair well with its other hues, like the vibrant orange Daylily and green Lamb’s Ear

If you want to start smaller with your East Fork collection, you can choose among plenty of options available in the new shade, such as the editor-approved Everyday Bowl. Shopping writer Nikol says that it’s the only dish she uses at home, and even though it sees so much action on the regular, it’s held up remarkably well. “The Everyday bowl is thick and weighty, but it still has a somewhat delicate feel,” she wrote in her review. “But, it’s been about eight months, and there’s nary a scratch or chip in sight. And because it’s so thick, the bowl doesn’t burn my hands, even when I fill it with steaming hot soup.”

Considering her glowing review and the launch of the new shade, I’m completely sold. I bet the collection will go fast, given that it’s limited edition and the fact that its tableware usually flies off shelves. Head over to East Fork to check out the rest of the items pronto!
