What Is a White Lies Party?

A white lies party is a party where everyone showcases a white lie on their T-shirt, usually for humorous effect. The white lies can be about anything, from made-up jobs or skills to silly made-up stories about your life. It's all good fun, and it's a great way to get to know people.

Remember, a white lie is basically a harmless little fib that you tell to make yourself look better, or to avoid hurting someone's feelings. They're usually not even lies that are all that important—just little things that you wouldn't want anyone to know about.

How Do You Throw a White Lies Party?

These parties are pretty easy to plan, and they really aren't all that different from a normal party—people just come with a white lie written on their tees. Here's one example of how to throw one!

Invite your friends over and beforehand explain that the goal of the party is to tell each other little fibs. Ask them to come wearing a white T-shirt with their personal lie written on it. A few other ideas:

  • At the party, have everyone write down 10 things about themselves, five of which are true and five of which are false.
  • Have everyone read their lists out loud and see if people can guess which parts are the lies!
  • Have a contest to see who can come up with the most creative white lie.
  • Have everyone share a time when they've told a white lie and what the outcome was.
  • Throw on some music and enjoy some refreshments and enjoy your party!

Tips for Making a Lie T-Shirt

Generally, one of the rules of a white lies party is that you must wear a T-shirt with your lie written across it (hence the name of the party). If you want to use this rule at your party, give your guests a heads-up beforehand. Here's an easy way to make a lie T-shirt.

  1. Get a plain white T-shirt and some fabric paint in a color of your choice.
  2. Write out your white lie in big letters across the front of the T-shirt using the fabric paint.
  3. Let the paint dry completely before wearing your shirt to the party.

Another idea is to buy a bunch of cheap white shirts and Sharpies of various colors for your party guests to use. Have everybody create their shirts at the party!

There are actually dedicated "white lie" shops out there as well, if you want to buy a shirt with your lie written over it.

You'll need to think of a good white lie before you head to one of these parties.

What Makes a Really Good White Lie?

As we say a white lie is meant to be a harmless fib that you tell in order to make someone feel better or to avoid hurting their feelings - and here you want to make it sort of funny, so everyone is in on the joke.

For example, if your friend asks you if you like her new outfit and you really don't, you might say, "It's great!" even though it's not entirely the truth. Or if your boss asks you if you finished the project that he gave you two weeks to do and you didn't, you might say, "It's all done, just 5 minutes!" even though it's not.

White lies are usually harmless and insignificant, but they can sometimes backfire if the person finding out the truth feels betrayed or deceived. For the party, though, they need to be fun and witty so that everyone can enjoy them. Here are some examples:

  • I once went skydiving without a parachute.
  • I was born in a log cabin.
  • I have a pet unicorn.
  • I have a photographic memory.
  • I can speak 10 languages fluently.

As you can see, the best white lies are creative and unexpected. So have fun with it and come up with some good ones of your own!

More Outfit Ideas for the Party

If you're attending a white lies party, then you'll need to dress the part! Here are some ideas for what to wear, from the standard white shirt to some more involved outfits.

  • A plain white T-shirt with the white lie written across the front in black or another color
  • A white button-down shirt with black pants and a black tie (fancy)
  • All-white everything!
  • A white dress

Whatever you decide to wear, make sure you look good in it so that you can feel confident when telling your lies!
