FZ300K Anyway to Get closer to subject at med-high zoom ?

Ok so I am trying to get a really blured background and get closer to my subject. The FZ300 at 200mm goes to about 3.3 ft zoom and at 400mm i have to step back to 6,6 feet. I tried the 75mm macro lens but that still leaves the background way to much in focus at f2.8. and 75mm.

So in playing with my canon sl1 and 55-250 lens I was able to focus about 1.5 feet at 420mm. To get the same blured background I have to backup to 4 times the distance.

So is there any close up or step lens that would shorten the focus distance yet not too tight of a focus plane area ?  I am not really looking for macro or a super thin focus plan just wanting to get closer so I can get those blurry background on smaller subjects.  I would say it be between a true macro shot and a regular zoom shot.

Any thoughts ?
