Start arranging them in the order of your choice. You can go by the rule of thumb by keeping the largest bouquet in the center and then arranging smaller ones around it.

Arrange vertically placed ginger leaves around these lilies. Once that is done stack your bunch together using a waterproof tape. You can bind it too tight or lose as per your preference. Use the more pliable leaves and stick them to the bouquet using an adhesive. Make sure that you start exactly below the flowers else your bouquet will look cluttered and messy. Wrap the design with leaves and you are done.
