SharePoint 2010 Web Part - Changing the web part background colour

On the main page of one of our SharePoint sites I have 3 web parts: 2 Calendars and 1 To Do List.
Is there a way of changing the background colours of - just - the web parts?
I do not want to change the whole of the site's colour scheme (which is based on our company colour scheme), just the 3 individual web parts.
The page looks very bland with all the same text colours and sizes, all on a white background.

Thanks for you time

Neil

You will need to open the page in sharepoint designer, select the div where the webpart lives and then use an inline style to override the sites main stylesheet declarations

Thanks QPR

I have managed to do this now in Designer by selecting [table] and changed the colours and put a border around the list.

Tried to do the same with a Calendar web part (just to put a border around it) but haven't found the section to highlight yet. I keep putting a border around the page!!
