Fortunately, there are plenty of flower vector backgrounds that allow you to do that, so long as you edit them using vector editing software like Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, or Affinity Designer.
All of the floral backgrounds below are available in vector format, so you can completely customize them to fit your needs. Some of them are free but require attribution, so be sure to read the license to make sure you’re using them properly.
