At white lies parties, everyone shows up in a plain white t-shirt with a little white lie written on it. These lies are super fun and are meant to reveal a little bit about your personality, especially the tiny flaws that your friends won’t stop grilling you about. If you just got an invite and need white lies party ideas fast, you’re in the right place! Here are ten funny white lies that are perfect to use for all your white lies parties.

“I’ll be there in 5 minutes”

I don’t know about you, but punctuality is not my strong suit. My friends already know that when I say I’ll be there in 5, I actually mean closer to 20. If this sounds like you, then this is a great white lies party idea. It’s relatable, funny and all your friends at the function can confirm that it’s true. Hopefully, you’ll be on time for the party, though.

“I don’t need caffeine”

Every friend group has that one friend who’s addicted to coffee or just caffeine in general (it’s me, I’m her). If you try to tell yourself every morning that you don’t need caffeine to make it through the day (also me), then this is a perfect white lie to use.

“I’m a natural blonde”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to break the news to people that I am not a natural blonde (my roots can confirm). Telling people you’re a natural blonde when you’re really not is a funny, harmless little white lie.

“I’ll pay you back”

If you’re the person who always says, “don’t worry, I’ll Venmo you!” but never ends up Venmo-ing anybody, then this is a great white lie for a white lies party. And your friends there, the ones you never pay back, will find it funny, too.

“I’m not gonna text him [or her]”

We all have that one friend who swears they’re not going to text that one person, and then, against their better judgment, they do. If your friends make fun of you all the time for doing this, have no shame and wear this lie for your next white lies party.

“I’m single”

If you’re at a white lie party with your significant other, a hilarious idea would be to wear matching shirts that read “I’m single.” It’s simple and funny, and everyone at the party will know you’re spoken for.

“I don’t have a type”

Friend: Yeah no, I definitely don’t have a type. Also friend: *only dates people with one specific trait* It’s okay, we see you. If you find yourself only going for people with a particular feature, like a certain hair color or height, this is a great, funny option for a white lies party.

“I’ll let you know”

If you invite me somewhere and I tell you that “I’ll let you know,” that was me letting you know I’m not going. We’ve all been in those awkward situations where, instead of telling people how it is straight-up, we just tell them that we’ll let them know… and then we never do. If this is a white lie you find yourself using all the time, wear it proudly on a white-t-shirt for your next white lies party.

“I won’t catch feelings”

Let’s be real, not getting attached to people is hard! If you’re someone that swears they can do non-committal relationships but always ends up catching feelings for someone, this is a perfect choice for a white lies party that’ll be sure to make your friends laugh.

“I’m fine, everything’s fine”

We’ve all been there with this white lie. If you get super stressed out all the time but always tell your friends that you’re fine, then this is a good white lies party idea for you.
