Use similar or the same color flowers in the arrangement; for example, pink, orange and pinky red, or blues and purples, etc.
Build your base first. Start with your greens and build a base; if you have a tall/large arrangement put greens in the base and then use greens to build a "frame" for the rest of your arrangement. I like to use hydrangea as a base as it fills up the space and acts as a "frog" when placing your other flowers.
Line your vase with something, so you can't see any "unsightly" stems. I like to use the leaves from the hydrangea to do this, but you could even submerge an entire hydrangea head!
Leave no holes! I like to fill every little gap so that my arrangements have an English garden lushness. I buy a pretty, but inexpensive, flower and then use it as filler (spray roses are great for this). I also group like flowers together in a bunch so that I get "clumps".
