Follow along, while see how the romance blooms between Keeley and Roy (team Keeley!) and what happens to AFC Richmond after their crushing defeat against Manchester City.

Ted Lasso Season 2 starts in July, and in perfectly delayed fashion, we threw a Ted Lasso Season 2 Party! Here, we featured Ted’s (and Rebecca’s favorite) cookies, plus a few of our favorites! Follow along to be inspired and to share that Lasso Love! Bonus – some awesome FREE printable games for your Ted Lasso Season 2 party!
Meg and I really needed an excuse to throw a party – really, we did. So, we threw a Ted Lasso Season 2 party, since we both have binged on Ted Lasso more times than we can remember. We wanted to do a Ted Lasso theme since the Season 2 date was released, but things have been hectic and we finally, 2 days before the release date, (in typical belated fashion) threw a party. Five dozen cookies, several batches of Rebecca’s biscuit, lots of tea and coffee, and creating games took a lot of coordinating! And we finally did it. Follow below to see how our party played out!
We love cookies in any form. We have a sweet spot for sugar cookies, because they’re fun to decorate and easy to customize. What’s a more perfect way to celebrate our Ted Lasso Season 2 than with customized cookies?!
For sugar cookies, we thought it would be fun to do quotes, the ‘believe’ sign, Union Jack flags, AC Richmond Jerseys, and Ted’s iconic mustache. We found the cutest cookie cutters from a seller on Etsy. She had a bunch of cutters that I ordered; however, apparently I can’t conceptualize size and I ordered some super tiny cutters and some really large cutters. As you can tell from the photos, the quotes and Union Jacks are giant cookies, and the mustaches and ‘believe’ cookies are weirdly small. But that’s okay! If you’re going to order some, it would be better to keep the sizes of the cutters consistent. Find these cutters here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetPrintsInc
For those of you that are new to sugar cookies, my go-to book is this book: Decorating Cookies Party: 10 Celebratory Themes * 50 Designs
I love this book. It has great tips on throwing a sugar cookie party, and it has cute ideas. Plus, I love her basic sugar cookie recipe. It’s my staple. I use this recipe for all my sugar cookies.
First, we made several dozen cookies and froze them. I store them in giant ziplock baggies when I’m freezing them.
When we are ready to decorate them, we bring them to room temperature before decorating. First, we outline the basic shape. Next, we let the outline dry before we fill the inside in. Then the filling typically needs to dry for 24 hours before it’s dry enough for us to write on.
Here I am attempting to outline the cookies. The quotes and the squares were the easiest to outline. I’m not quite sure what the heck I was thinking with the Union Jack flag. I was severely overestimating my craftiness factor. There is no way my lines are straight enough to pull of the British Flag. If you want to do a British Flag, I think your best best is cutting out straight edges with fondant. See my British Flag Fails below.
Scribble your favorite quote on the cookies or your favorite player’s name! Super fun and super easy.
We purchased edible markers and used these to write on the hardened icing. Here’s the link for the edible markers: Food coloring Pens, 11Pcs Double Sided Food Grade and Edible Marker
You can’t tell from these photos, but these cookies aren’t perfect. I don’t have quite a steady hand to get a great outline, but whatevs. I feel like that’s okay, and that Ted Lasso would just tell me to roll with it. The good thing about Meg’s photos? They’re really quite forgiving. As you can tell from the photos, the cookies look dang good.
Also, check out these super cute stickers we found on Etsy!! Perfect for our Ted Lasso Season 2 party. Plus, I threw some on my water bottle for good measure.
Other Ted Lasso Treat Ideas!
Ted Lasso Season 2 Party Games (3 free games!)
What party wouldn’t be complete without games?! Meg and I don’t have a dart board, so we had to come up with our own games instead.
We created 3 games – Bingo, Ted Lasso Trivia, and a “Who Am I?” game! All these games are available for your Ted Lasso Season 2 party!!
1. Ted Lasso Bingo
This game is best suited for Ted Lasso beginners. It’s easy and no knowledge is needed for the game. The rules of regular Bingo apply; however, we didn’t dictate a “free spot” so you can choose how you want your free spot to be played.
Print the call words and cut them out. Next, print out your bingo sheets. We created 30 different bingo cards – so you’ll have fun playing Bingo several different times and with several different people!
When printing the bingo cards, it’s best to print 2 pages per 1 sheet of paper.
And that’s a BINGO!
2. Ted Lasso Quiz
This is a silly and fun trivia quiz. It’s easy to do. Just print and answer. Play in teams or against yourself. Need answers?! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for answers….
3. Ted Lasso – “Who Am I?” Game
This game is admittedly for Ted Lasso experts. It’s the game where you stick a name on your forehead without seeing what it is, and you ask other people questions and then you have to guess who is stuck onto your forehead.
Print our ” Who Am I” tags, cut out and play! Some of these names are really tricky, so you might want to go through and pull out the harder names.
However, if you’re up for the challenge because you’re a die-hard Lasso fan, then here’s a cheat sheet for the AFC Richmond player and character list – just in case you need some reminding on who is who. I would have failed miserably if it weren’t for this cheat sheet!
