Sorry, don't know if this fits here or in the Help Me Build/Buy section....

Anyway, I just purchased a copy of Windows Home Server 2011, and wanted to know if you can use 64-bit Windows 7 drivers in WHS 2011 64-bit version?

Should be able to, yes. I don't see an issue.
WHS2011 is built on Server 2008 R2, which is the same code-base as Win7 x64.

That said, drivers that are rated for Server 2008 R2 are preferable. 'Server' rating carries a higher stability requirement (that said, it's not as large a spread as it was in the XP/Server 2003 days, I think.)
