Using employees to plan an office event is a great idea (as long as the event planning doesn't interfere with work). Form a small committee to take care of the details. Decide on a budget and ask for ideas from committee members or the entire body of employees.

Be sure to plan 'backwards' from the event date, so that there is plenty of lead time for accomplishing all the necessary details.
