The GtkLabel widget is one of a few GTK+ widgets that don't create their own window to render themselves into. Instead, they draw themselves directly onto their parents window.
This means that in order to set the background color for a GtkLabel widget, you need to change the background color of its parent, i.e. the object that you pack it into.
