To start with, you will need to define your page background color like so:
body {
     /* This creates a dark grey background*/
     background-color: #333;
}
 or use:
body {
     /*This creates a black background*/
     background-color:#000000;
}

Once this is done, you can then change your Form1 attributes by altering your existing background-color to the same #333 or #000000 like so:
#form1 {
      padding:10px;
      width: 450px;
      margin:auto;
      font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size:13px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      /* Change this to determine your form background color */
      background-color: #333;
      border: thin solid #FFF;    
}

The altered file has been attached as a plain HTML file which you can view in your browser. You may also notice that I have added a border element to the form, but this is entirely optional and can be removed if you desire.

I would also recommend a different change beyond this minor change since it appears that you are beginning to build a multi-page website. Industry best practices require most, if not all, style marks to be moved to an external CSS file which is called whenever a page loads. This practice allows you to alter all style elements with one modification across an entire site. Once you have your <stylename>.css file built, you can then call it from your HTML file using <link href="../<stylename>.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> in your <head> element.
