Change background color in GTK 3


I would like to change the background of a button in GTK3

In GTK2, I was doing :

        GdkColor color;
        gdk_color_parse ("gold",&color);
        gtk_widget_modify_bg(GTK_WIDGET(widget), GTK_STATE_NORMAL, &color);

and it was working perfectly.

In GTK3, I am doing :

        GdkRGBA color;
        gdk_rgba_parse (&color, "orange");

and it doesn't work. I don't understand what I have missed

Thank you
