There should be a .xinitrc file in your home directory. If not, you can create one. In it, you can put the path to the xfce executable(s) - I think there's more than one for the main xfce wm and taskbar etc., as well as any other stuff you might want to fire up automatically. I don't use xfce myself, but I've used blackbox in the past with a similar thing in mind. My .xinitrc went something along these lines:
exec bbkeys -i &
exec blackbox &
Where bbkeys is a keymapper that I had some custom things set for (the -i switch was to iconify aka minimize it at start), blackbox is the window manager, and xfe is the file manager I used, which I wanted to start up automatically.
