Change color of menu background + drop down menu backgrounds

1 0 0



I am super new to design + customization on Shopify and I want to add small boxes behind each menu tab in the color #E3D5C6 and also make the drop down menu background the same color. 

Right now it's all white and blends too much. I want some contrast but don't know how to even start. 


I would appreciate a step by step guide. 

The website is - thank you so much!!
