Welcome!

I did a search on the image. I believe it is a floral arrangement with at least one orchid (orquideas brancas translates to white orchid). The image seems to be associated with the name Luis Cantu Rodriguez.

My guess is that there are 3 plants in there and the white flowers are orchid flowers.

The tall leaves look like Strelitzia. The pic is pretty fuzzy @ my end. Can anyone find a cleaner version? The shape of the bottom leaves is like Sansevieria but the way the light is shining through them (or is that variegation, camera flash?) makes me think it's something other than that.

These are Globba, the Buddhist lent flowers. They are very common in Thailand.
Keep going!

The tall plants with the white flowers look like Dancing Ladies Ginger 'White Dragon' to me.

Yes, Globbas are gingers. The reason this arrangement is wrapped in white paper is because it's given to monks (sometimes nuns) as an offering.

On the bottom are often pineapple crowns. I bet that's what this one is.
Keep going!
