Free Blog Background - Aqua Floral Explosion

This one is a bit busier than most of these that I create, thus the name "Aqua Floral Explosion'! I've added some floral bouquets from an antique postcard and laid them on top of a distressed aqua background. Enjoy!

This free background was made to be used on a Blogger blog using the Minima template for the standard number of columns.

Follow these instructions to easily add this background to your blog:

1)Make sure you are logged in and then click "Customize" at the top of your blog.
2)Click on "Add A Gadget"
3)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
4)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below.
5)Click "Save" and you are done!

<style type="text/css">body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:10px; top:30px; z-index:50;width:172px; height:51px;"><a href="" target="_blank"><img

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Nothing says "Got to have it!" quite like an explosion of Wild Roses and Forget-Me-Nots! Come for a BLOG LOOKSEE? Thanks! I loved my Moss Roses from The Background Fairy but this floral blast has snagged me like a hook on a bamboo pole tossed over a festival fishing pond booth! Many, MANY thank yous!

  2. hi karen
    I love all your blog backgrounds. I tried to use one of the pink ones, but it made my middle column (the middle blog part) go white instead of its original pink. I am sure it is easy to fix it, but I didn't want to start messing with the codes in the page source and wreck anything else. (i know a bit about code and html) Do you any other fairy backgrounds that would complement my tinkalicious?
    email through my web page, thanks for any help! tink

  3. I just love this one!!! THANKS!
    Hugs, Lisa

  4. Hey Sparkle,
    Your comments crack me up! I'm glad you like the new background, it looks great on your blog!

    Hi Tink,
    Yes, the backgrounds are as they appear, if it has a white middle section it will stay white as it lays the whole thing over top of your template. I'll try to remember to make one with a pink center at some point. I have several others ready go now so, it may be a little while.

    Hi Beverly,

  6. Summer "reruns" can be a drag, can't they? Well, here's one I'll think you'll like: Thank you, again, for the ever-so-lovely "Aqua Floral Explosion"! You truly made my yesterday!

  7. This one is great. The frame is the tiny one that works well on the 2 column wordpress blogs. Your Paris background has the same frame. I love roses. I like to change mine a lot and you give me so many options.

    ps. lots of good feedback on the green damask. I am going to put this one up so if you want to see how it looks on wordpress you can.

  8. Good morning Karen,

    I got your website from one of the bloggers so I was curious to find you.

    Thanks for the floral background, I took this golden opportunity to beautify my newly created blog called My Kind of Nook.

    I might find something to enhance my blog side bars.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. Bless You.

  9. I tried to put one of your backgrounds on my blog but it won't work, can you help me?

  10. Hi Delaney,
