Check out these36 inch balloons. They are pre-filled with multicolored confetti. The best way to do this is to inflate them with air, shake them to spread the confetti around, and then rub the balloon against a mat to help the confetti stick to one side.
I've also read that adding a drop of water before inflation will help the confetti stick to the side of the balloon.
If you inflate them with helium, the confetti will settle to the bottom. Also, due to the weight of the confetti, it doesn't float as well or last as long as a deflated balloon.
