Off the top of my head, you should copy the app folders from:

/Applications/ <--- this is the actual application
~/Library/Preferences/ <--- these are your app specific prefs
~/Library/Saved Application State/ <--- this stores saved runtime state, might not be necessary

Those are really all you need. There's no God awful registry like Windows so not much else to do there.
FYI... if you simply wanted to move Office and nothing else, you could technically do this. But you're leaving out some stuff needed for it to work.

Essentially, you can go to this page, and for each step instead of removing you'd just copy the item to the same place on the new system.

For Office 2011: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768
For Office 2008: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2500821

But that said, if you do it that way, you're very likely going to create some permissions issues. So at the very least you should run a permissions repair once you've moved everything. It would work though.
