In short--you can't.

The purpose of having themes is to allow the end user, not the developer, to choose a theme suitable to their preferences and needs. For example, your theme might not be well suited for someone with poor eyesight, colorblind, smaller/bigger resolution monitor, etc.

If you REALLY need your app to have precise control (such as a touch-screen application for a POS or something where the target audience and platform is known to be uniform) you can design you own theme or customize it at the application level using GtkStyle and gtkrc.
