You use CSS to give the form, or a containing DIV depending on how your markup looks, another background color.

Do you already use CSS? If not, click the link CSS Reference in the top and bottom menus here and start reading.

As an example, this would make any form have a white background.

form    { background: #fff }

This would make everything inside an element with the id foo have a white background, unless something else is specified for a child element.

#foo   { background: #fff }

It's also a good idea to specify text and background color together, to avoid possible conflicts with styling elsewhere.
