Ok, if you mean human blood cells:
White blood cells are aproximately twice the size of red blood cells
Red blood cells all have the same shape: a disc that is biconcave(does this word exist in English?) while white blood cells have various shapes
Red blood cells have no organelles but they have hemoglobine
